Jennifer Herr, NP, has always been in awe of the complexity of the human body and the strength of the human spirit. "I wanted to work in a profession that would remind me of these things on a daily basis," she says. In her practice, Jennifer's goal is to emphasize patient education and empowerment. "Health and wellness encompasses more than just physical health. It requires care of the entire person," says Jennifer. "I love the daily interaction with patients. Healthcare can be overwhelming and confusing. I enjoy my job most when I am able to assist patients to better understand their unique medical conditions and when I can advocate for them to take charge of their own health." Born and raised on her family's farm in Silverton, Ore., Jennifer now loves to spend time with her husband and two dogs. In her free time, she enjoys trail running, camping, gardening and soaking up the intermittent Oregon sunshine.
