Tessa Privett completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at LSU Medical Center, and later received her Master of Science in Nursing and her Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Mississippi University for Women. Tessa has cultivated experience in many areas of nursing including the Intensive Care Unit, the Emergency Room and in case management of chronically ill children in New Orleans, Louisiana. She chose to focus in the field of spine health starting in 2013, when she worked with a neurosurgeon, assisting in spinal surgery. She felt it was a natural transition to work in the Integrative Medicine field, to prevent patients from going through the rigors and complications that often follow spine surgery. Tessa worked in Integrative Medicine as a nurse practitioner for several years prior to coming to Back 2 Health. She enjoys doing her part to alleviate pain for patients and help them to avoid high-risk surgical procedures.
When not working, Tessa enjoys spending time with her husband and three children. Her husband is a local neurologist, and supports Tessa fully. Tessa is very active outdoors, being a life-long runner and a tennis enthusiast. Living life to the fullest is a joy that Tessa wants to extend to all her patients, and she is able to do that well here at Back2Health!
