Meet our Surgical Staff

Jennifer Knapp, RN

Jennifer Oden, RN

Growing up in Bennington, Nebraska I currently live in the Colon, Nebraska area. I have enjoyed this area for several years now with my three young children, who are very active in sports and dance.

Medical Career

Graduating from Midland Lutheran College in 2001 with my BSN,  I began working at Fremont Area Medical Center for 2 years on the telemetry and ICU floor, and then spent 6 years working in pediatrics. I have been at Saunders Medical Center for over three years in surgery/specialty and have enjoyed watching the department expand!

"I enjoy working at Saunders Medical Center for several reasons. I love the staff that I work with here, I enjoy the small town facility and patient care. This is a wonderful facility to have in such a small town and I thoroughly enjoy seeing the patients smiling faces!"

Outside of Work

My hobbies include:

  • Coaching competitive gymnastics in Fremont
  • Almost any outdoor activity (hiking, bike riding, boating, skiing, etc)
  • Reading
  • Shooting my compound bow on my free time

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your surgical needs.
