About Jenna L Ford

Jenna Ford is a Neurology trained Neurointensivist with an interest in education and neuro monitoring in the ICU. Originally from South Florida, she first became a gator during her undergraduate education at UF. She completed her bachelors of science in Neurobiology and Food Science & Nutrition graduating summa cum laude. Dr Ford then moved to Burlington, Vermont for medical school at the University of Vermont. She attended Columbia University for her Neurology residency and the combined Columbia-Cornell program for her fellowship in Neurocritical Care. During this time she was involved in research in brain tissue oxygenation and curriculum development for advanced practice practitioners. After her fellowship, she came back home to the gator nation to join the Neurocritical Care faculty at UF Health in 2021.

In her free time she enjoys tailgating at Florida football games, entertaining friends with her budding mixology skills, and cuddling with her dog Zoe who is on her way to becoming an official Shands therapy dog.
