Jennifer Hopson, MSN, APRN, CPNP-PC

Jennifer grew up in Dallas- Fort Worth and is excited to help care for children and families in this community. She attended nursing school at Texas Christian University and received her master of science in nursing from Texas Woman's University. Jennifer first knew that she wanted to work in pediatrics while in nursing school. She worked as a Pediatric Oncology Nurse for nine years where she learned many life lessons including how strong the bond is between parent and child and the importance of having fun while working! This experience helped shape the qualities that she wanted to have as a nurse practitioner.

Jennifer's belief is to treat each family with patience and ensure that their concerns are heard. As a mother herself, she believes that there are no silly questions. Parenthood is a journey that can be filled with worry and self doubt. Her goal is to help ease that doubt and make parents feel confident when caring for their child at home.

When Jennifer is not working she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the lake, watching college football, and playing with her two Irish Setters Clancy and Cal!

She is married to Mike and has 1 daughter, Madison. She enjoys scuba diving, gardening, crafts, and photography.
