Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of Jenny Knecht, CRNP, to Mount Nittany Physician Group Endocrinology.

“My dream has always been to live in Happy Valley,” Knecht says. “When my family decided to relocate to the area, I focused my search within Mount Nittany Health because of the outstanding reputation regarding high quality, patient-centered care.”

Knecht earned her bachelor’s degrees in biobehavioral health and nursing, and her Master of Science Nursing Education and Master of Science Family Nurse Practitioner from The Pennsylvania State University.

“As a healthcare provider, my focus is to empower patients through self-motivation and education,” says Knecht. “Helping individuals make positive decisions about their health is the most inspiring and rewarding part of my job.”

Knecht enjoys an active lifestyle, and in her spare time likes cooking, working out, and spending time outdoors with her husband, Evan, and dog, Josie.
