Jay Edwards, RN

Practice Manager

Jay’s nursing experience has been primarily in acute care nursing, so it thrills him to be able to work with Crossover where he can help people control the risk of chronic illness before they need to be admitted to the hospital. The ability to make a positive impact with every patient interaction makes nursing a natural fit for his skills and ethics.

Jay joined the Air National Guard while he was in college and retired after 22 years as a Master Sergeant. In a move to find satisfaction in his professional life, he enrolled in a nursing program. He found so much joy in nursing and leadership that he subsequently pursued his Masters.

Jay grew up in Bowling Green, Ohio, which is where he met his wife, Emily—they now have three extraordinary daughters together. When he’s not working, he enjoys simple pleasures like crosswords, reading, and singing in a barbershop quartet.

What makes me unique:
I became a nurse after a corporate career and time in the military.

Why do I practice healthcare:
I practice healthcare because it gives me the singular ability to positively impact each patient I work with. That is what drives me. Secondarily, I have a passion for the clinical aspect of the job and educating people on what their diagnostic findings mean. Combined it is extremely satisfying to know I just may have changed someone’s life for the better each day I work. That is a job anyone could love.
