Jennifer Peterson, FNP, Functional Medicine

Jennifer Peterson is a Family Nurse Practitioner who has worked in the western suburbs as a cardiac and vascular health nurse for over 10 years.  She is passionate about community education and has taught classes about living a healthy life with heart disease.  She attended Purdue University for her bachelor’s degree and Chamberlain University for her graduate degree.


She experienced the frustrations of her patients who were feeling abandoned by the limits of a more traditional medical approach.  That was what compelled her to research a functional medicine approach to wellness and recovery.  She was excited to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Zielsdorf, because it was important to work with a physician who practices functional medicine.  Jennifer is looking forward to continuing her education and helping develop programs to reach out and educate the community with the message of living an abundant life through functional medicine.
