RICHMOND – Please join the Richmond Area Health Center in welcoming Jessica Krol, FNP. Jessica looks forward to providing medical care to the residents of the Richmond area. Her experience comes from a variety of medical settings, from larger hospitals to rural health centers.

Jessica obtained her Master of Science in Nursing degree at Husson University in Bangor, and her undergraduate nursing degree at Saint Joseph College, CT. She has worked in the demanding environment of a Level 1 Trauma Center, and possesses a background that spans adult, pediatric, and family medicine.

Jessica has shown to be a tremendous asset to the HealthReach team.


Jessica joins physicians Linda Hermans and Henry Scheuller, and nurse practitioners Melissa Hackett and Tom Bartol.
