Jessica Balfour

Jessica was born and raised in Portland Oregon, and worked as an JessicaBalour2017ICU RN in Salem after graduating nursing school in 2013.  She credits her previous job for helping her develop her critical care and critical thinking skills, as well as teaching her how to interact well with hospital staff, patients and patient family members. Jessica calls herself an eternal optimist, and became interested in organ donation because she “loves the good that comes from being able to bring something positive to such a negative situation”. When not working, Jessica enjoys traveling, working out, going out to eat downtown and spending time with her husband and dog.
