Jennifer Burks, APRN, CNM

Jennifer came to Hilton Head Island in 2006 to work for well-known obstetrician, the late Dr. Neil Love at Island Women’s Center. Jennifer was one of the first Certified Nurse Midwives to deliver babies at Hilton Head Hospital. While working with Dr. Love, she was also instrumental in helping start Clinica de la Mama to provide quality healthcare for Hispanic women. Jennifer’s career progression later led her to Bon Sain Complete Women’s healthcare, where she was honored to work with Dr. Kristi Blessitt.

“When Dr. Blessitt made the announcement that she was closing the practice, I knew I wasn’t ready to retire and I also felt responsible for my patients,” said Jennifer. “I was well aware of Dr. Klenke’s reputation and skill, so I approached her to see if she would be interested in adding a Women’s Health branch at Pinnacle.”

Jennifer prides herself on administering compassionate care and developing trusting client relationships. She received her Post Graduate Nurse Midwifery Certification at Texas Tech University and has more than 25 years’ experience providing Ob/Gyn care. At Pinnacle Women’s Health, Jennifer provides annual gynecologic exams for women and adolescents that cover a full spectrum of care, including Pap Smears, breast exams, screenings, family planning, contraception, counseling for menopausal issues and much more. Her goal is to help nourish patients’ bodies and their lives as a whole.
