MEET THE NURSE PRACTITIONER
Jenny Glasshagel, FNP-C
Jenny has been in the medical field for almost 15 years where she started at a small community hospital in Illinois. After obtaining her Registered Nursing degree in 2004, she worked in the field of pediatrics, general medical, emergency room, surgical, and aesthetic nursing. Over the years she began to see a need for health promotion as opposed to sick care. This drove her to want to do more as a health care provider and she started her education to become a Nurse Practitioner.
She graduated with a Masters of Science in Nursing with a specialty as a Family Nurse Practitioner from the prestigious Loyola University Chicago in 2015. Her thesis here was “A Prescription for Physical Activity,” which was so well received she was invited to the accelerated doctorate program here. While this was quite an honor, Jenny was eager to start clinical practice and started this new phase of her career in integrative physical medicine.
Jenny and her family decided to move to Austin, TX in 2017 where she accepted a position in pain management. It’s here that she realized how strongly her patients needed healthcare providers that could focus on restoring their health. She discovered her passion for health promotion and chronic disease prevention which is what ultimately brought her in as the Medical Weight Loss Director at True U Wellness!
Jenny is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Obesity Medicine Association, and the Institute of Functional Medicine. She has been deemed by those who know her as perpetual student who loves to learn and teach all thing’s health! She has a passion for listening and helping people become their best selves by creating personalized approaches for each patient. Jenny’s patients have said she truly listens to them and know they are getting the best care possible when they leave her office.
She currently lives with her husband, two children, two dogs, and chickens in Dripping Springs, TX. She enjoys practicing yoga, hiking the local trails, dog training, listening to podcasts, and a good cup of coffee on her front porch.
