Jennifer most recently worked for a local boutique women’s sexual health and wellness practice focusing on complex sexual health disorders, pelvic floor dysfunction, incontinence, hypoactive sexual desire disorder, persistent genital arousal disorder, and other vulvovaginal disorders such as vulvodynia, lichen sclerosus, and genitourinary symptoms of menopause. She has also been providing telehealth women’s health and menopause care to patients all over the area.

She also has worked as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner in several women’s health and family planning clinics in Northern Virginia, where she provided full-scope gynecological care for adolescents through menopause, conducted STI and vaginitis evaluations and treatments, provided contraception counseling and IUD and Nexplanon insertions and removals.

Jennifer has a passion for women’s health and well-being at all stages of life. She currently serves on The Body Agency’s Medical Expert Board in addition to her work on the National Menopause Foundation’s Medical Advisory Team. She is a North American Menopause Society (NAMS) certified provider and member, a member of the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health (ISSWSH), the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), the American Urogynecology Society (AUGS), the Society for Family Planning (SFP), and The American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP).

 “While menopause is defined as the end of a woman’s reproductive life, but it’s not the end of your meaningful, productive life.” In fact, it’s a transition to a new, and in many cases, a freer, more vibrant, and fulfilling stage.
