Jennifer Hrivnak, ARNP
My focus in family medicine is empowering patients to make proactive decisions regarding their healthcare, especially regarding proper exercise and nutrition. I gain satisfaction knowing my patient families are making positive strides and changes to their lives, improving both their physical and mental well-being.
I’m originally from Solon, Ohio and I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Bowling Green State University in 1995. After a year in the civilian nursing world, I joined the Air Force and was stationed at Keesler Medical Center in Biloxi, Mississippi, working in the emergency department. I met the man who later became my husband during the first few days of my enlistment; he was a fellow Air Force nurse. During my time as a flight nurse, I traveled all over the world and have served in three oversees deployments, evacuating our nation’s heroes from counties such as Oman, Iraq, Pakistan, Kuwait, Al Udied and Germany. I was most recently assigned to McChord Air Force Base, where I was employed as an emergency/trauma nurse. After settling down to raise a family, I decided to enroll in graduate school at Pacific Lutheran University, and I earned a Master of Science in Nursing with an emphasis in family medicine.
My husband Ed and I have two young children and our family motto is “work hard to play hard.” Most of our family time is spent doing outdoor activities including traveling, camping, hiking, swimming, boating and flying small fixed-wing aircraft. I also enjoy downhill skiing, wakeboarding, hot yoga and softball.
I look forward to meeting you and your family as we begin our partnership together in making the right decisions regarding your healthcare.

From making an appointment to follow up… again, amazing! What else can be said!? The care I’ve always received has not so much even skipped a beat with Mrs. Hrivnak.” -Benjamin
