Our story

Redefining your healthcare journey

You’re not just a name on a chart. You’re an individual with unique healthcare needs and preferences, looking for a primary care provider that listens, understands, and puts you first. That’s why Something to Crow About was born: To serve as your partner in achieving better health.

We get it—navigating today’s healthcare and insurance maze can feel overwhelming. You’re tired of rushed appointments, one-size-fits-all treatments, and surprise medical bills. That’s why we’re flipping the script. As a team of experienced nurse practitioners, we were frustrated by the inefficiencies and limitations of traditional healthcare options and founded Something to Crow About in 2022 to bring back the essence of medicine: compassionate, personalized care that works for you.

From our inception in 2022, our journey has been driven by one simple belief: healthcare should be about people, not profits. We offer what large healthcare systems cannot: the luxury of individualized care and a close-knit community of patients and providers, but we are more than just another healthcare option; we’re a community-centric, affordable alternative that you can rely on.

If you’ve been looking to experience healthcare that’s not only evidence-based but also soul-based, reach out to Something to Crow About. We are here to help you take control of your healthcare journey and enjoy a healthier life.

What we believe

Our philosophy

All care, including alternative care, should be evidence-based

We’re committed to offering treatments and recommendations grounded in scientific evidence. We don’t chase trends; we follow facts. Our focus on evidence-based care ensures that you’re receiving healthcare you can trust.

Reviving the art and soul of medicine

We feel that the current healthcare system has been overwhelmed by bureaucracy and profit motives, overshadowing the true essence of medical care. We’re taking a stand to bring the focus back to the art and soul of medicine.

Health insurance isn't the only option (and often not the best option for everyday needs)

We feel that the current healthcare system has been overwhelmed by bureaucracy and profit motives, overshadowing the true essence of medical care. We’re taking a stand to bring the focus back to the art and soul of medicine.

Patients should be at the center of healthcare

Unhindered by the constraints of insurance regulations and hospital systems, we offer a range of services tailored to you.

Meet your care team

Jennifer Christensen

APRN, CNM, CNP

Jennifer (Jenny) grew up in Watertown MN, graduating from Watertown-Mayer High School in 1998. She got her Masters Degree in Nurse Midwifery from Bethel University in 2016. Working as a midwife in a small rural community, she desired to continue to see her families beyond their immediate childbirth years. This led her to a post-Masters certificate as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Graceland University in 2019. She continues to work in this northern Minnesota practice delivering babies and taking care of families throughout the lifespan. Jenny’s experience in a traditional healthcare setting allowed her to see that there are some clear gaps in the medical system and with a passion in rural healthcare and local communities, she set out to offer an alternative model of care to the community in which she has lived for the last 25 years. Something To Crow About Health Clinic was born out of the idea that the clinic is located on the Crow River and that high quality, personable health care truly is Something To Crow About! In her spare time, Jenny can be found on the farm with her husband John and 4 dogs. Together, they enjoy raising and showing registered Shetland show ponies all over the country.
