Dr. Flippo has been a pediatric nurse practitioner with Kid Care Pediatrics since 2007. She is originally from Houston but now makes her home in Saginaw on her husband’s family farm, along with a menagerie of animals.
She is a graduate of Texas A&M University and completed both her Master of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice at the University of Texas at Arlington. Jennifer met her husband while at Texas A&M, and they have two sons: one is a class of 2019 TAMU graduate, and the other attends the University of Texas at Austin. This has created a house divided, but the Aggies tolerate the burnt orange as much as they can.
Jennifer is active with Texas Nurse Practitioners as an ambassador to local state legislators and has participated in item review panels for the national nursing licensure exams. Her professional interests include management of children’s social and emotional needs, policy development, and study of social determinants of health.
In her free time, Dr. Flippo enjoys traveling, teaching yoga, and renovating her 1970 Airstream.
