Medical School: Goldman Medical School at Ben Gurion University
Family Medicine Residency: Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency
Jenny grew up in the rural high desert of California where it is still somewhat challenging to access health care. She went to UCSB and earned a BS in chemistry with the intention of continuing to get a PhD but got sidetracked into teaching. She taught high school science for almost a decade, first in Hawaii and later in Bulgaria, where she had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students from exceptionally reluctant learners to the top young minds in the country. Later, she moved to Beer Sheva, Israel to study international medicine at a collaborative program between Columbia University and Ben Gurion University, with the goal of staying overseas.
She came to Maine-Dartmouth as a resident in 2003, drawn to the idea of providing full scope care in a rural community and impressed by the commitment of both faculty and residents to providing whatever a community needs. She served as chief resident during third year. She still maintains a love of teaching and education. Upon graduation, she joined the faculty, first at Four Seasons Family Practice and later at Maine Dartmouth Family Practice, holding positions of associate director and medical director of the practice at different times. She is board certified in both family medicine and addiction medicine and continues to enjoy practicing full scope family medicine.
