Jessica Campbell, BS, BSN, WHNP-BC

Jessica Campbell, BS, BSN, WHNP-BC

Instructor

Jessica Campbell’s passion for healthcare began during her undergraduate education in 2004 at Radford University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and minored in Sociology. This laid the groundwork for understanding how socialization plays an integral role in providing and receiving healthcare, as well as the need for compassion in counseling and
education.

In 2010, after working in various aspects of women’s healthcare, Jessica completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Miami. She then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Nursing in 2012 from Virginia Commonwealth University, specializing in Women’s Health. The practical experience, first as a medical assistant, then as a registered nurse, and currently as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, affords Jessica a strong medical knowledge base and has shaped her holistic approach to patient care.

Over the last several years she focused on providing OB/GYN care to refugees and the underserved in the city of Baltimore. However, she considers being a mother and raising her son Remi to be her greatest achievement.

Jessica recently moved back home to the DC area and is joining the practice of Reiter, Hill, Johnson, and Nevin as a Nurse Practitioner in July. She is thrilled to become a part of our Nested family and have the opportunity to educate couples during this exciting part of their life’s journey.

Kelly Bonette, RNC-MNN

Kelly Bonette, RNC-MNN

Instructor

As a Registered Nurse who has spent the majority of her nursing career teaching and caring for newborns and their families, Kelly is delighted to be able to share her knowledge and experience with families as they begin their journey into parenthood!

Kelly has spent all of her nursing career working at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Virginia. She has worked in multiple roles in the hospital including critical care nurse, postpartum nurse, clinical manager, and patient care director of the mother-baby unit. After taking on a new role at the hospital that was outside of the Women and Infants Service, she found herself missing the interaction she had with new parents and their babies. She is delighted to get back to her passion of teaching and caring for newborns and their families through teaching with the Nested team!

Kelly and her husband have five children and one grandchild, so she brings practical “real-life” experience along with the evidence based education we provide at Nested. Like many women, she has worked to fit her professional life around her mothering. As her children grow older and move on to college and being more independent, she finds herself with more time and energy to devote to her other passions. Kelly is currently working toward her Master’s Degree in Nursing at George Washington University. When Kelly is not working or spending time with her family, you will likely find her studying, working outside in their yard, or her personal favorite: at the beach!
