Career Influence

“I was influenced to become a healthcare provider after working alongside medical volunteers in Guatemala and Peru. I was taken aback by the major impact they made with very limited resources in rural villages. I finalized my career decision after working with amazing nurses and physicians here in Seattle. I was empowered by watching the health care providers forge strong patient-centered relationships and seeing the positive impact it had on health outcomes in our community. It was through these experiences I was inspired to improve health care locally and globally.”

Clinical Interests

Jacklyn provides comprehensive primary care for adults. Her special interests are preventive medicine and chronic disease management.

Practice Philosophy

“As a nurse practitioner I am committed to providing collaborative, compassionate, and comprehensive healthcare. I aspire to do this by maintaining emphasis on the health and well-being of the whole person. This means taking the time out to listen each patient’s concerns and learning about their healthcare goals at each appointment. I believe it is essential for the patient and provider to work together to generate an individualized treatment plan while integrating the most up-to-date guidelines for evidence-based medicine.”

Personal Interests

Outside of work, Jacklyn enjoys walking her Boxer, playing piano, and traveling.
