Elissa Jacobs is the new family nurse practitioner at Firm Foundations Healthcare Center in Liberty. She joined Brandon Smith, PA-C, and Mary Poston, PA-C, at the clinic in November and says she is ready to help patients “live their best life” through good healthcare.

Jacobs, 29, a resident of Beaumont, earned her undergraduate degree in nursing at Lamar University before continuing her education at the University of Texas-Medical Branch.

She has five years of nursing experience, including one year as a nurse practitioner at an urgent care clinic. Firm Foundations is the first family practice for Jacobs.

As a nurse practitioner, Jacobs will help patients of all ages with preventative medicine and the treatment of illness.

“I haven’t met all our patients yet. I ask for their patience as I get to know them,” she said. “I want them to know they are in the best hands they can be here at Firm Foundations. They are with people who care, who listen and are constantly looking for the newest and best ways to treat their medical needs.”

As the daughter of a Baptist preacher, Jacobs says she is happy to find the clinic practices ethical medicine and is “very faith-centered and very Christ-centered.”

“You are being prayed for before you even arrive at the clinic. It’s very comforting to me to know that. It feels like a very safe place to come and a safe place for me to learn,” she said. “Mary and Brandon have been fantastic but I don’t want to downplay how incredible the nursing staff is, too. They are amazing.”

If anyone wishes to book an appointment to see Jacobs, she is available every weekday except Tuesday. For more information, call the clinic at 936-334-8800.

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the clinic, Firm Foundations Healthcare Center is hosting a customer appreciation day on March 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The clinic is located at 1201 N. Travis St., Liberty.

“This is our opportunity to thank you for giving us the privilege of caring for all your healthcare needs. Please stop by for BBQ, music, fellowship, games and prayers,” the announcement reads.
