Owner and Nurse Practitioner
Jessica was born and raised near Union City, Oklahoma. She grew up on the farm of her grandparents, Jerry and Sylvia Benda, which is now a Centennial Farm. She attended Southern Nazarene University, where she obtained her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing with numerous honors in 2010. She then worked at Mercy Hospital for a few years prior to starting nurse practitioner school at Oklahoma City University, where she assisted in not only patient care, but policy and procedure creation for the hospital. She continued with a transition to work at Saint Anthony’s in the Emergency Room during graduate school. She graduated in 2016 with her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at the top of her class. During that time, she completed her capstone project, focusing on preventive healthcare among rural, middle-aged men. She worked at Oklahoma Heart Hospital directly out of school, and most recently worked in family practice at Dycus-Camp Clinic, a long time family care clinic in Moore, Oklahoma. She is focused towards the health and wellness of each patient, and feels strongly that the way to obtain this is through having a strong patient-provider relationship.
Jessica is married to her amazing husband, Eric, and has a daughter, Samantha. She also has two “dog”-ters, Penny and Porsha, who you occasionally may see at the clinic. In her freetime, she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling when possible. She loves sports, and enjoys being active.
Eric, Jessica’s husband, will be present to help with various tasks. You may see him in between visits, or hear him with the occasional phone assistance. You can continue to see the clinic thrive on family and relationship with every face you see within the clinic.
