Jessica Lucero graduated from nursing school in 2009 from Fayetteville Technical Community College in Fayetteville, NC. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Grand Canyon University in 2015 and her Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) degree from Simmons University in Boston, MA in 2020. Jessica’s experience as a nurse has been in medical telemetry, special needs school nursing, hospice, medical oncology and outpatient surgery. Jessica has loved her time as a bedside nurse but is excited about her new journey in Wound Care as a nurse practitioner.

Jessica grew up outside of Ft. Bragg, N.C. but her heart was always in the mountains of N.C. After a trip to Alaska with Samaritans Purse, Jessica and her family decided to move to Boone in 2018. In her free time, Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband and four children. It is likely you will catch her around town at a Watauga High School football game or track meet. Jessica is passionate about the veteran community and plans to volunteer with this community when her children are a little older.
