Patient Care Philosophy
"The patient is always first. I enjoy getting to know the people I care for and love that my role both in clinic and on the floor at 6SE (at UW Medical Center) allows me to do that. I love to help solve problems and educate patients whenever possible."
Education and Training
- Bachelor of Fine Arts, Oregon

Practitioner ProfileJennifer Brackensick Grant worked in research before joining a career in healthcare. "I was constantly asking people for samples (for my research) and they had a hard time providing," Jennifer says. "I wanted to give back to those who really need help."
Caring for cancer patients can be challenging, "but it provides opportunities to educate and solve problems," she says. "That is what I like to do most." In her lifetime, Jennifer hopes to see research discover new ways to treat sarcoma. "We are still looking for that magic wand that removes pain and/or nausea, too."
When she isn't working, Jennifer loves to be outdoors. But she enjoys knitting, baking, and getting crafty, too.
