Professional Statement

Meet Jennifer Follestad, a dedicated and compassionate Nurse Practitioner at Instant Urgent Care. Jennifer’s journey in healthcare began with a childhood curiosity about hospitals, leading her to a career marked by compassion, connection, and a commitment to patient well-being.

Jennifer was raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, where she laid the foundation for her medical career. She attended the University of Missouri, earning her Bachelor’s in Nursing, and later pursued advanced studies at Yale University, obtaining her Masters in Nurse Practitioner.

Jennifer’s fascination with the inner workings of a hospital dates back to her childhood. At the age of 13, she volunteered as a Candy Striper, delivering flowers and mail to patients. This early exposure ignited her passion for patient care and set her on a path of lifelong dedication to the field.

What Jennifer loves most about healthcare is the ability to connect with her patients. Her approach centers around creating a comfortable environment where patients can easily interact, fostering a bond that enables her to better understand and assess their needs. This commitment to personalized care enhances the overall patient experience.

Outside the clinic, Jennifer finds joy in outdoor activities. Skiing, hiking, and traveling are among her favorite pursuits, reflecting her love for adventure and exploration. Equally important to her is spending quality time with friends and family, creating lasting memories beyond the confines of healthcare.

Jennifer’s palate is delighted by the flavors of sushi, a cuisine she holds dear to her heart. When it comes to dessert, her sweet tooth is satisfied with the creamy goodness of chocolate ice cream.

Jennifer Follestad’s journey from Saint Louis to Yale, her early volunteer work, and her commitment to patient-centered care make her an invaluable member of the Instant Urgent Care team. Her genuine connection with patients, love for adventure, and appreciation for the simple joys in life set the tone for a warm and caring healthcare experience.
