Dr. Jackson is proud to call herself a true Tarheel and a North Carolinian, although her family ties reach the entire range of the Eastern Seaboard. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and completed her Doctor of Medicine degree at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in 2007. She completed her Family Medicine Residency at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia, SC in 2011.
Dr. Jackson has trained within research fellowships and clinical programs at the National Institutes of Health and Mayo Clinic Rochester. She completed an NRSA Primary Care Research Fellowship and a Master’s Degree in Public Health at UNC-Chapel Hill in 2013. She has a strong desire to connect her love of primary care with her passion for research.
Dr. Jackson adds, “I have practiced across the spectrum of care settings, including rural medicine and urgent care. I am interested in promoting equity in healthcare for all people and I believe that effective communication between physicians and patients is the key to successful medical outcomes.”
In her spare time, Dr. Jackson enjoys spending time with family and working in her garden. She is married and has one son.
She currently serves as the Medical Director for Urgent Care at the Family Medicine Center and the Director of Inclusive Excellence for Faculty.
