Jenna is originally from Minnesota and has lived in Bend for 20 years now. She graduated from Oregon Health and Science University in Ashland in 2005. She began her nursing career at St. Charles Medical Center, specializing in orthopedics and neurosurgery and then worked at Bend Surgery Center for many years. She constantly left work wondering how her patients did after their hospital stay or surgery. This led her to begin schooling to become a Nurse Practitioner. She wanted the continuity of care to extend past their short facility stay. She attended Gonzaga University and graduated with her master’s in nursing in 2015. Outside of work, Jenna enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, fishing, cooking, reading, playing piano and camping.
