Jen began her medical career in 2002 when she became a Medical Assistant practicing in Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Radiology, Obstetrics, and Dermatology. She obtained an Associate’s degree in Nursing in 2016. During the nursing leadership rotation, she worked independently in Labor and Delivery at Spectrum Health and found that to be the most rewarding work and best fitting department. Since then, she has been working as a procedure nurse and is also ACLS/BLS Certified.
As a ProDoula Certified Postpartum & Infant Care doula, she loves caring for mothers and babies. She brings calm, comfort, and confidence into a home.
Jen lives in Grand Rapids’ Fulton Heights neighborhood with her husband and four children. As a family they love spending time outdoors, going to the beach, going on picnics, and kayaking.
