Jon Ann Esponge is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She received her Associates of Nursing from Conners State College and then moved to Kansas City, MO, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC). She worked at Children’s Mercy Hospital for 15 years and during her last few years she decided to further her education and received her master’s degree in the Family Nurse practitioner program at UMKC.
After graduation, Jon Ann worked in pain management and Men’s Wellness for a while and then decided it was time to move back home to Oklahoma to be closer to family. She had been working in a Family practice office when she was given the opportunity to follow a different path, one that lead her to Strength of Mind and where she feels God’s plan directed her to follow.
Jon Ann believes that providing the best environment is what is key to a healthy patient-provider relationship, and this is accomplished by providing appropriate individualized treatment plans for her patients, providing a safe place for her patients to open up and providing spiritual support.
Jon Ann loves traveling and spending time with her family. She has a wonderful husband of many years, three beautiful daughters, one of which followed in her footsteps and became a nurse, one who decided that she was not cut out for the medical field and became a teacher and then the youngest who decided to serve her country and is an Airman in the Air Force. She has 5 wonderful grandchildren, whom she adores and loves to spoil.
