Jessica began her career in healthcare as a Certified Athletic Trainer after graduating, Suma Cum Laude, from California State University – Fresno with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology. While she loved working with student athletes, she felt limited in the scope of care she could provide, so she decided to continue her education in the healthcare field and found family medicine to be her passion. After attending the University of Idaho Jessica went on to earn her master’s degree from Idaho State University, though if you ask her she does consider herself a Vandal at heart. Jessica and her family love attending as many Vandal and high school sporting events that they can.
Jessica is truly excited for the opportunity to provide optimal healthcare to the residents of her community. Having grown up in a small agricultural town, in California, Jessica and her husband knew they wanted to provide a similar experience for their own children, where they could get to know their neighbors and be part of a tightknit community. So throughout her training Jessica always took the time to understand the daily lives of those she was treating and learned that the treatment for an ill college student is not necessarily the same for a working mother. Taking the time to know her patients has been Jessica’s priority and has aided her in providing the best healthcare treatment possible.
Whether you are a parent with a growing family, a college student, or senior in years, Jessica is here to help you make the best choices for your long-term healthcare needs.
