Jennifer Lemert, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, graduated nursing school from University of Maryland at Baltimore in 1991.

She initially lived in Alaska from 1999 to 2008, and then returned in 2012. Currently, she practices at Mat-Su Surgical Associates and ENT Facial Plastic Associates in Palmer, AK.
