Head Nurse: Jenna Gunnell
I have been a nurse for 7+ years and a Nurse Practitioner for 2+ years. I will be practicing as a nurse at BB&N summer camp this year and I cannot wait!
My passion for pediatric health and wellness started when I began volunteering at High Hopes Therapeutic Horse Back Riding barn, in CT, at the age of 15! Since then, I’ve gained health care experience in both pediatric critical care and school based community health clinics. I’ve cared for children who are at their best health and also cared for children with acute health illnesses requiring ICU level care. My clinical experiences have taught me the importance of creating a strong health and wellness foundation for children of all ages. My hope is that through well-child health education kids can grow into their own strong health advocates one day. I also look forward to helping the campers at BB&N summer enjoy the plethora of fun activities offered!
In my spare time, I have three dogs, two lovable Saint Bernards – Cleo and Knox – and a lab mix – Freya. I also enjoy hot yoga, walks and or swimming at the beach, and I’ve even started to enjoy gardening! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions this summer!
