Jacqueline, Nurse Practitioner

Hello, my name is Jacqueline Benavidez. I am a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of New Mexico. I practiced as a BSN prepared nurse for 12 years at the University of New Mexico Hospital, specializing in areas such as Medical Subacute Care and Labor and Delivery. I earned my Master of Science in Nursing from Simmons University in Boston, Massachusetts. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I specialized in otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat) for 2 years. Given my past experiences, I gained a deeper respect for natural anatomy and developed a clearer understanding of the aging process. My passion for aesthetics led me to AlluraDerm. A career that combines all things beauty with something that I love to do. I believe self-care is the most important element in boosting self-confidence. My goal is to create a natural, refreshed, head-turning glow version of you. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and our 2 dogs. I love to travel, be outdoors, eat good food, and spend summers on the lake. I am personable, detail oriented and dedicated to helping others look and feel their very best.
