Jerrilea began her nursing career in 2007 after she graduated from Cisco College with her Associate Degree in Nursing and later pursued and earned a Bachelor Degree in nursing from University of Arlington in 2010. As a nurse, she’s worked in the operating room at Medical Center of Plano and Texas Health Resources Harris Methodist Southwest Fort Worth for 5 years before deciding to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner. She succeeded and graduated from the University of Texas in Arlington in 2016 with a Master of Science in Nursing and was certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Before joining Dr. K. Pepper DO, P.A. Orthopedic Clinic, she developed her own surgical assisting business. The operating room provided opportunity to surgically assist a verity of surgeons of different specialties in the DFW area. This allowed for greater understanding of what patients go through during their most vulnerable times. Seeing patients after surgery regain their health and increase their quality of life is the driving force behind her passion for healthcare.
Jerrilea is in a committed relationship with 2 stepsons. She lives outside of Fort Worth. When she isn’t enjoying time with the kids and her significant other, she can be found riding horses or working out in the gym. Coming from a small town in West Texas, she is no stranger to the country life. Ranching is a lifestyle choice her and her family have adopted. The many animals they feed and land management is just all part of the daily chores. This life is a blessing from God and Serving the Lord is of the highest priority.
