Jennifer McKenna joins Pen Bay Ob/Gyn Associates
Dr. Jennifer C. McKenna, obstetrician/gynecologist, has joined Pen Bay Ob/Gyn Associates, a department of Penobscot Bay Medical Center.
Born in Lewiston, McKenna grew up in Belmont, Mass. She and her husband and two children, ages 9 and 10, will be settling in Camden.
"The Midcoast and Pen Bay are just the right fit – for my career and for my family," said McKenna, who will start seeing patients on June 1.
McKenna received a bachelor's degree in biological sciences from Stanford University and her medical degree from the University of Southern California. Her residency and internship were at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. From there, she moved to Georgia, working at women's health practices outside of Atlanta, in Lawrenceville and rural Carrollton.
She is a member and fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Her medical interests include adolescent health and working with women with disabilities. She chose obstetrics and gynecology because she wanted to focus on the entire range of women's health issues.
Outside of work, McKenna enjoys spending time with her family as well as taking piano lessons (baroque and classical music are favorites), quilting and gardening. She was a season ticket holder to the Atlanta opera and is looking forward to discovering the many cultural opportunities in the Midcoast.
Pen Bay Ob/Gyn offers the services of board-certified obstetrician/gynecologists and certified nurse midwives. Phone: 596-8900.
