Jeanine Swindoll, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC

Jeanine Swindoll is a psychiatric nurse practitioner who grew up in Lubbock, where her family operated a successful pet shop. She decided to pursue a career in nursing after working as a nurse’s aid, when “I realized I really liked helping people.” Ms. Swindoll earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in nursing from Texas Tech University. She began working as a Family Nurse Practitioner in primary care, then in pediatric surgery. Her inspiration for psychiatry grew out of that experience.

“On trauma call, it is necessary to communicate with people in possibly the worst moments of their lives.” It was then she realized a natural gift for putting people at ease. Ms. Swindoll then completed a Psychiatric Fellowship program at Texas Tech and became licensed as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner through the University of Texas.

Jeanine and her husband have two adult daughters and 3 granddaughters. “I lost a son to illness so I understand the complex emotions associated with grief.” Her husband is an electrical contractor. When not working, they enjoy spending time with family, travel and scuba diving.

While she has a great deal of experience working with adults presenting with the full range of behavioral health issues, as well as addiction, Ms. Swindoll finds gratification in working with people suffering from PTSD. “I never realized how many people suffer from childhood and other traumas.” When asked what she most enjoys about her work, Ms. Swindoll stated that it is the ability to truly change the quality of people’s lives… patients she has treated have told her “I feel normal now, and I didn’t know that was possible.”

    TESTIMONIALS

    CASSANDRA W.

    Awesome clinicians working here. I was able to get my child's diagnosis so I can get him services. Early diagnosis is the the key. My son is autistic and has ADHD as well as other health issues. Kisd was able to get my son the services he needed based on his diagnosis he received at this office. My son is now 6 and has made a 200 percent improvement due to reviewing intervention early on.

    Dr. Connell was very easy to talk to. He listen to all of my concerns and addressed them. Him and his staff made me feel comfortable. I have been waiting for over a year for a appointment at scott and white. As soon as I called his office I received a appointment right away.

    Dr. Connell's office has been professional and courteous. My husband and I like how well he listens to our concerns and how we explain ourselves about our daughter. We are hopeful on this new path with his help with our daughter.

    HEIDI P.

    Doctor Connell and his staff went out of their way to assist my daughter and I with the process of obtaining a diagnosis (report) and submitting referrals for the care she needed. This was an acutely difficult period for both she and I, as it was her first diagnosis and testing experience. All around they were patient, kind, thorough and efficient. Highly Recommended!

    Very friendly staff, enjoyable office area and the staff did a wonderful job helping us learn more. Dr. Connell is good and explains things in plain English and not medical terms. Felt very re-assured we will get the help we need for our family.

    When you walk into the office you are welcomed right away. You don't have to wait.for someone. It doesn't have the feeling of most Dr.'s offices. It has a relaxing feel which is important for the children.
