Meet Jenna Bixby-Nehl, RN, MS

Jenna was born and raised in the Peoria Area, and she has been around the eye care business all of her life and started working at The Bixby Eye Center at the age of 14. She then pursued a career in nursing and healthcare administration. She graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor's of Science in nursing and a Master's of Science in Health Service Administration from the University of Saint Francis. She has experience in the inpatient clinical setting as well as the management of a large nursing unit in the hospital setting and a large physician office in the outpatient setting. She returned to The Bixby Eye Center in 2012 to fulfill a life-long dream to work in the family business and service our community with their eye care needs.


Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, snow skiing, playing with her dogs and traveling.
