Jennifer Knapp knows how important compassion is to healthcare. As a nurse practitioner, her goal is to listen to patients in order to offer the best options for them.
“I truly enjoy connecting with my patients, especially when I can help ease their fears. Empathy totally changes the dynamic when working with patients. When a woman is diagnosed with a condition, she may feel anxious. I love to explain what’s going on with her body and help her understand the options she has so she can make the best decision.”
Jennifer became a certified nurse practitioner specializing in women’s healthcare after receiving her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Minnesota. She is passionate about all aspects of gynecology and helping patients achieve successful pregnancies.
“It’s so great to watch patients grow and change through the years, including the appointments before and after pregnancy. Meeting their new babies brings even more joy to my job.”
Besides being a nurse practitioner, Jennifer is a runner, a mother of two, and a foodie. She enjoys eating at restaurants with her friends, but balances out the extra calories with exercise, biking and yoga. Jennifer also loves to travel with her family to new places, including Hawaii and Lithuania.
