About Jessica Southard, PA-C
After completing a rotation with Dr. John Piper, she knew The Iowa Clinic would be a good fit. “I got very lucky to end up with such a great group of people,” she says. Neurosurgery was a perfect choice for Jessica because she enjoys the intricacies of surgery and the immediate gratification of helping patients. If she weren’t in the OR assisting with surgeries, she has a number of careers she’d be interested in: an animal rescuer, zoo vet, an engineer, detective, or she might rehab old houses. In her free time she enjoys being with her family, traveling, cooking and doing puzzles.
