Jennifer Dennison, WHNP-BC, RNC-OB
Board Certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner in Reston, Virginia
A native of Wausau, Wisconsin, Jennifer Dennison WHNP-BC, RNC-OB proudly joined the Perfectly Female team in the Summer of 2023, coming to us with 18 years of experience as a nurse.
While serving six years as an enlisted sailor in the U.S. Navy, Jennifer was selected by the Navy to pursue her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Florida State University, also receiving her commission as Naval Officer. Jen served in a variety of roles as a Navy Nurse in San Diego, CA, Pensacola, FL and Portsmouth, VA. This is where Jen cultivated her love for Women’s Healthcare, working primarily in Labor and Delivery, Antepartum and Postpartum departments and earning the distinction of Certified Inpatient Obstetrics RN (RNC-OB).
Jennifer left the Navy after 12 years of service to spend more time with her family and continued to serve women and military families as a Labor and Delivery Nurse in the National Capital Region.
Desiring to broaden her focus on serving women of all ages and stages, Jen completed her Master of Science in Nursing at Georgetown University, where she studied to become a Board-Certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP-C). She is dedicated to caring for and educating both patients and new nurses. Shortly after graduation, she became an Adjunct Clinical Instructor, teaching undergraduate nursing students at George Mason University.
Jennifer loves being a Women’s Health NP, as it blends her love for educating and caring for women, helping them to be the healthiest version of themselves. Her goal is to empower them to seek care through shared decision making with a provider who sees and hears them, a provider who wants to help them to be more comfortable, through particularly challenging or uncertain times of their life. She is passionate about providing early prevention and screening, holistic care and when necessary, the most appropriate medical interventions to all her patients.
Jen is married to her husband of 17 years, Ryan, a Navy shipmate, and they have four beautiful and loving children. A few fun facts about Jen – she loves to read, bake with her kids, listen to music, experience life with her family, and is a partial owner of the Green Bay Packers!
Jennifer, “Jen” is a fantastic addition to our team at Perfectly Female and we are happy that she has joined us. Please help us welcome her to her new home.
