Biography

Nurse-Midwife Jennifer Light grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved to attend Texas A&M University. Prior to graduating with her Bachelors of Science in Psychology, she met her husband, a United States Marine, and was able to travel the world with him after graduation. After a short break from school, Jennifer pursued her passion for women’s health and obtained a Master of Arts degree in Lactation from Union Institute and University.  She worked as a private board-certified lactation consultant serving mothers whose husbands were deployed. After her husband’s honorable discharge from the military, she was able to resume her education and received her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from UT Health Science Center, much to the chagrin of all the Aggies in her family.  She graduated with honors and as a member of Sigma Theta Tau International, the honor society of nursing. Jennifer decided to further her ability to serve women and enrolled in Baylor University to pursue a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree with a major in Nurse Midwifery.  Her capstone project, which focused on implementing Pap smear guidelines, was accepted for a forum presentation at the 2016 ACNM conference.

Since Jennifer will always be an Aggie at heart, it only made sense for her to return to Aggieland and practice as the only certified nurse-midwife in the area with hospital delivery privileges. She is excited to bring a fresh face to midwifery and offer women safe options in their care and birth.
