Jennifer Swift, FNP

Jennifer Swift is a nurse practitioner with a focus on family practice from pediatrics through elders. She deeply values the body’s natural capacity for healing and optimizing health through nutrition and physical activity. She appreciates the relationships she develops with patients and finds that by developing trust and understanding she is better able to meet the individual needs of her patients. Her scope of practice has been varied: she has worked with refugees from Africa and the Middle East; and worked in remote locations in Alaska, in public health and private practices. She enjoys the detective work of identifying the root cause of illnesses and treating appropriately with the least intensive methods. In addition to managing long-term medical conditions, she also performs annual exams for women and men, sports physicals, gynecological exams, and she treats minor urgent illnesses and injuries.

Jennifer enjoys outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, gardening, and spending time with her family. In addition to working with patients, she has worked with her husband as owners/operators of a timber frame and construction company as well as a bed and breakfast.

Jennifer graduated from the University of Southern Maine in 2010 with a Master of Science in Nursing. She also obtained her registered nursing degree through the University of Maine and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
