Jennifer Allyn Freeland, founder and CEO, is a dual board certified nurse practitioner with over fifteen years’ experience in the medical field. She grew up in Santa Barbara, California, the oldest of three in a predominantly medical family. As an undergraduate, Jen attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Language and Literature. Despite a winding path to get there, Jen always knew she would follow in her parents’ medical footsteps; in 2004 she realized her dream and became a nurse. Jen then spent the next seven years in critical care, ending her bedside nursing career in the surgical intensive care and trauma unit at the University of California San Diego Medical Center, earning her Master of Science degree in Nursing Education along the way.
Jen moved to Nashville in 2011 to begin the Emergency Nurse Practitioner program at Vanderbilt University. She completed her post-master’s training in 2013 and is board certified in both acute care and family practice with specialization in Emergency Medicine. In 2016, Jen received her doctorate degree in nursing from Vanderbilt, where she is now a proud member of the school of nursing faculty.
Jen has been an emergency department nurse practitioner since 2013 and, while she admittedly thrives in a high-stress, adrenaline-rich environment, Jen has long been interested in skin care, non-surgical aesthetic enhancements, and promoting health and wellness. As aesthetic medicine is an ever-evolving field, Jen feels that education should be a lifelong pursuit in order to stay most up to date on current ideas and techniques. She is certified in neuromodulator and dermal filler injection, medical grade skin care and resurfacing techniques, laser therapy, use of platelet rich plasma and fibrin (PRP/PRF) for aesthetics, sclerotherapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, sexual dysfunction, anti-aging therapies, and medical weight loss.
Jen loves practicing “happy medicine” and strives to use her training and expertise to bring a healthy balance of wellness and beauty to her beloved Mt. Juliet and middle Tennessee family, enhancing her clients' outer glow, ultimately boosting overall well-being and self confidence. Jen believes in conservative approaches to non-surgical cosmetic enhancements, helping her clients to become the best version of themselves rather than looking like the next over-enhanced celebrity icon.
Jen and her husband Dave, a Gallatin native and CVICU nurse and educator, live in Hermitage with their sweet dog Sadie and six cats: Dylan, Cash, Bocephus, Brooks, Jennings, and McGraw. Jen and Dave love to travel and try to get away at least once a month to some of their favorite "local" spots such as Chattanooga, Asheville, and the North Georgia mountains in addition to flying "home" to California a few times a year. When they're not working or traveling, Jen and Dave spend their time renovating their home, kayaking, golfing, camping, and discovering some of Music City's great restaurants.
