When you’re the kind of person who likes to ‘get things done,’ once you set your sights on a goal – you’re used to doing what it takes to make it happen. For patients of Crovetti Ortho who find themselves under the experienced and watchful eye of Jennifer D’Andrea, APRN, you’re likely to discover that her enthusiastic attitude toward helping you achieve your own wellness goals…are often fully in sync with her goals for you.
Perhaps that’s due to Jennifer’s passion for her career as Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in the treatment of Sports Medicine and Geriatric pain management. Board Certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Ms. D’Andrea earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The University of the Virgin Islands, and her Master of Science in Nursing at Ball State University in Indiana.
Ms. D’Andrea began her career as an RN, working in Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care in Las Vegas and Seattle. But during the past several years, she has chosen to focus on pursuing Advanced Joint Injection and other training needed to better help thousands of her patients on their road to recovery from pain and injury.
Ms. D’Andrea has found that patients tend to achieve their desired health goals in accordance with the amount of personal, active investment they make in their own recovery. She is thorough in arming each patient with the necessary tools and education about their specific condition so they are better prepared to achieve optimum success. Empowering each patient in this manner most often results in a high rate of success both during in-office treatments and beyond.
Such a commitment to her patients and her work, though, does require building in personal downtime – for Jennifer as well as her charges. During such periods, Jennifer and her husband, Andy, enjoy traveling to both U.S. and international locations; hiking, skiing, and camping; gardening, cooking, and reading; and perhaps most of all, spending time with their Humane Society rescued Labrador.
