Jess chose the Nephrology area of medicine because after working in Internal Medicine for several years, she wanted her career focus to be on specialty care. It is important to Jess to educate her patients so they can be an integral part of their health care decisions. She loves living and working in Iowa and when she’s not in clinic, Jess enjoys running, cooking, photography, traveling, and spending time with her family.
Jess completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Iowa and worked as a nurse in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where she then completed her master’s degree. She is an Adult/Geriatric Nurse Practitioner and is certified with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She is located at our Methodist Plaza office, where she has been practicing since 2010.
