Jennifer King, M.D.
Jennifer King, MD UCSF; Her early roots in Minnesota, Jennifer mostly grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Sensing that her true home was further west, she headed to Reed College in Portland, OR for studies in literature and biology. After college she worked in neurobiology research on stroke, coordinated a tattoo removal program for former gang members, worked with homeless youth and took in as much northwest scenery as possible. Craving one last east coast hurrah, she completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail before moving to San Francisco for medical school. There she continued to pursue her interests in community medicine and underserved populations, studying housing for homeless elders and participating in PRIME-US. She is thrilled to be joining the family in Santa Rosa and building on her passions for geriatrics and palliative care, integrative medicine, mental health and community development. Her favorite things include long jaunts in the mountains, baking crusty bread, knitting, laughing loudly, growing vegetables, writing and getting to spend time with her husband, Harry.
