My name is Jen Gebhardt and I am a Registered Nurse teaching Health Career Exploration here at KCTC. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2000. As a Registered Nurse I have worked in a variety of settings with diverse patient populations. I have worked in the hospital, in the community, in free clinics and have also had the privilege of working in Africa. What I love about nursing is the variety of work and the patients I get to serve.
Working at KCTC is a great fit for me because I get to combine my knowledge and skills in my nursing career with my love for young people. I have always enjoyed working with students and have spent many years volunteering with youth- either at church or at after school programs and summer camps. In addition to my nursing degree I also have a graduate certificate in Urban Youth Ministry from Fuller Seminary.
I look forward to doing all I can to help my students thrive in the classroom and to explore the world of health care. My goal is to prepare students for their next steps in their education and to provide them with hands on experiences and opportunities to expand their knowledge.
In my free time I love to travel and have gotten to take many trips with my favorite travel partner- my mom. When I am not at work or out in the world traveling somewhere you can usually find me swimming, riding my bike or at the beach.
