Jennifer P. Deese, PNP
As a mother of three, Jennifer Deese knows well the struggles new parents face. The desire to help them through those first few months is part of while she became a pediatric nurse practitioner. "After working as a nurse for 10 years, I decided to further my education and become a nurse practitioner," Jennifer shared. "I chose pediatrics because I love caring for children.
"My area of specialty is newborns," she continued. "I am also a certified lactation consultant." This means that Jennifer is specially trained to help new parents with breastfeeding issues, ranging from concerns about newborn weight gain to pain while breastfeeding for the mother.
"Children bring so much joy to the world," Jennifer said. "But along with that joy comes many questions and concerns. I want parents to know that I am dedicated to providing the best care for each child, and to addressing caregivers' questions and concerns."
Jennifer stays very busy when she's away from the office. "I married my high school sweetheart and we have three active children," she said. "We love attending our children's sporting events, spending time with family, going to church and traveling."
