Jennifer is double board certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C). She began her career as an RN in 2002 and worked in Neuro Trauma and Oncology. She went on to receive her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Texas Tech University where she graduated Suma Cum Laude in 2009. Jennifer graduated with honors from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in 2013, where she completed her Master of Science in Nursing degree. She also obtained her Family Practice Nurse Practitioner certification in 2013.
After working for several years as a Family Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer identified that many of her patients had mental health needs that were not being met in a Family Practice setting. She determined that she would like to expand her training and enrolled in the Psychiatric Mental Health Practitioner program at UT Health Science Center Houston and completed her post-masters certification in 2020.
Jennifer is passionate about providing holistic care and addressing her patient’s mental health needs while staying in-tune with their overall physical health.
