Jenna Gaines, NP, started her healthcare career as a nurse in Seattle, WA. Continuing her education to become a nurse practitioner fulfilled a lifelong goal of caring for people in a holistic capacity.
When caring for patients, Jenna’s first priority is to listen and learn what is important in their day to day lives, and how their health affects their lifestyle. “When creating care and treatment plans, what the patient wants should always be at the center,” Jenna says, “I want to understand what their goals are for improving or maintaining their quality of life.”
Jenna received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Seattle University, then earned her Masters of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice at the University of Arizona. In her career, she has had the privilege of caring for patients in Belize and our veterans through the Veterans Administration. In her free time, Jenna loves to travel and explore new places. She also enjoys hiking, yoga, and going to music concerts.
