Meet Jessica Whitney, Practice Manager
Jessica formally joined Peine Osteopathic Medicine in September of 2009 but worked as our management consultant for several years prior to joining us permanently. She comes to us with over 15 years of medical management experience and a combined 17 years in the healthcare industry. Having managed both a private practice and a large-hospital owned practice, her decision to join Peine Osteopathic Medicine was born out of a common believe in whole-body medicine married with the concept of compassionate, personalized care that extends beyond the traditional practice model.
She brings a broad knowledge of all areas of the healthcare industry to our practice. Having started her career in the healthcare industry at Blue Cross of Idaho and seeking her certification as a professional coder she has a deep understanding of the claims billing process from start to finish. Prior to Peine Osteopathic Medicine she was employed as a credentialing/reimbursement analyst for Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center performing all areas of contract / fee schedule management and reimbursement analysis.
While Jessica enjoys her career immensely she draws her greatest reward and satisfaction as role of wife and mother. She and her husband Rob have 3 beautiful daughters, Chelsea – 18, Gracie – 6 and Emily – 4. They also have 3 children, Nathan, Haley and Peyton who live in Washington and Boise. Outside of taking care of her family and managing our practice she is passionate about exercising and considers herself a professed home chef. She also spends time reading, crafting and crocheting.
