About This Provider

Jennifer Gardner, APRN, CNP, provides care with the Springfield Clinic Allergy, Asthma and Immunology team and sees patients at Springfield Clinic Koke Mill. She collaborates with Dr. Sudha Prasad.

Jennifer earned her Master of Science in Nursing degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine and her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Missouri in Columbia. She has more than twenty years of nursing experience and nearly a decade of experience as a nurse practitioner.


Citing her own experiences with allergies, Jennifer is ready to help her patients address their own health. "As I have lived through most things my patients are going through, I feel I have a good understanding and really know what they are going through," she says.


Jennifer highlights the role that new cutting-edge medications and treatments can play in helping patients deal with their allergies.


"As a person who suffered for years without many options, new advances in medications and treatments helped change my quality of life drastically," Jennifer says. "I can't wait to share what I have learned personally and professionally with my patients."


In her free time, Jennifer enjoys knitting, reading, spending time with her family and taking care of her horse. She sits on the Old State Capitol Board and is involved with the Illinois Women in Leadership.
