Meet our newest team member, Jennifer L. Wood WHNP-BC! At OBGYN Specialists of Columbus, we take pride in working with personable, caring staff members who work hard to get to know each of our patients.
Jennifer comes with a long history of patient care, with nearly a decade as a nurse. Wood earned her BSN from Rhode Island College in 2009. Originally a nurse in the surgical oncology department, Jennifer’s focus of practice shifted once she became pregnant with her first child. She wanted to help other women and care for them the way she had been cared for during her pregnancy and postpartum.
A self-described “huge advocate” for breastfeeding and proper mental healthcare after birth, she regularly discusses wants and needs with patients at postpartum visits. As a mother to two children, Jennifer said she feels better prepared to talk to her patients about personal matters, including breastfeeding, postpartum depression and various other concerns and challenges both new and experienced mothers face.
She now works as an adult-gerontology nurse practitioner with a subspecialty in women’s health. In 2017, Jennifer graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Jennifer is board certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and an active member of the Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health Organization.
Jennifer Wood WHNP-BC specializes in women’s health and her passion for female patient care is superior — it’s in alignment with the highest level of care we opt to provide at OBGYN SOC.
Jennifer is a military spouse and mother of two children, Aubree and Cameron.
