“What I enjoy most is helping women by listening to their concerns and educating them about how to improve their health.” ..Dr. Kim Lane
This simple patient philosophy carries over into what is a very special relationship with our employees. One of our greatest joys is to see the people that we mentor go on and excel in the medical field.
Jordan first came to Women’s Health Wise in 2003 to shadow Dr. Lane as part of her leadership curriculum while studying at the University of Colorado. She went on to work as a medical assistant for Dr. Lane from 2004 until starting medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in June of 2006. Her experiences at Women’s Health Wise played a large role in her acceptance into medical school as well as her continued passion for the field of obstetrics and gynecology.
Where is Jordan Now?
I live in Broomfield with my husband, Ben, who is also a physician in internal medicine and our two daughters. I am an OB/GYN with Kaiser.
I began working at Women’s Healthwise in July of 2006 as a medical assistant. The position was referred to me by my cousin Jordan Mendoza, who was working with Dr. Lane at the time. At first, I was nervous about taking on this job as I had just received my nurse aide certificate and did not have very much experience. However, after a few weeks of learning from and being mentored by Dr. Lane, I was certain that I wanted to pursue a long term career in nursing.
I started attending undergraduate courses and was eventually accepted into nursing school while working for Dr. Lane. After my graduation from nursing school in May 2011, I took a position as a registered nurse at an acute rehabilitation center in Denver. While working I continued to advance my education in order to obtain my bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) from Metropolitan State University in Denver, during the summer of 2012.
Where is Jaimie Now?
Currently, I am working on a postpartum floor at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette. In the future, I hope to continue with school and eventually become a nurse practitioner, specializing in women’s health. Working at Women’s Health Wise for five years helped me stay motivated and excited about my future in nursing. I am very grateful to have been mentored by Dr. Lane. What I learned and experienced while working for her has shaped the path for the person I have become. I am married to Ryan and have a little boy.
I came to work at Women’s Health Wise to gain experience working in the medical field before pursuing my own career in medicine.
Working at Women’s Health Wise taught me many things about medicine and women’s health. While I gained excellent patient care experience that has helped prepare me for Physician Assistant’s school, one of the most rewarding aspects was getting to know patients on such a personal level. Due to the intimate and private atmosphere at Women’s Health Wise, and the excellent patient care that Dr. Lane provides, I was able to participate in some of the most important and challenging moments in our patient’s lives. Whether they were having their first child or undergoing important surgeries, working at WHW was an experience that has left a lasting impression upon me.
In addition to getting to know our patients, I also learned a lot about medicine and what it means to be a healthcare provider. Dr. Lane spent countless hours teaching and mentoring me during my time at the Practice. She has been very influential over my short career in medicine thus far and I feel that I gained an incredible amount of experience working for her. My time at Women’s Health Wise has helped me get to where I am today and has prepared me extremely well for Physician Assistant’s school and a career in medicine.
Where is Britney Now?
I am currently a student at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. in both the School of Medicine and the School of Public Health and Health Sciences. In 2016 I will graduate as a Physician Assistant with an additional Master’s Degree in Public Health Epidemiology.
I first came to Women’s Health Wise as a patient of Dr. Lane’s. I was working as a medical assistant in another doctor’s office at the time and at every visit Dr. Lane would tell me that I was welcome to come shadow her if I wanted the extra experience. When I heard they were hiring in January 2011, I couldn’t wait to apply for the job. I was still a full-time student in my last semester at CU, so Dr. Lane allowed me to work part-time, until I graduated in May.
I always had an interest in OB care and women’s health, so naturally I was ecstatic when I learned about some of the things that Dr. Lane would teach me in my time at Women’s Health Wise, but what I got out of it was so much more. She taught me about many different diagnoses, from bacterial and yeast infections, to menopause, and endometriosis. I learned about all of the lab tests that go along with certain symptoms, and even had the chance to shadow her in the Birthplace and operating room. The thing that I will take away most from my experience at Women’s Health Wise, is the relationships that I built with each of the patients. From getting to know women throughout their OB care and being able to watch their families grow, to caring for patients in more difficult times such as surgery, it felt so wonderful to be a part of these women’s care and to be there for them throughout their time with us.

I am currently living in Tennessee, with my husband while he completes his residency in pediatrics. I am thinking about a career in either nursing or public health, but am still undecided.
I grew up in Boulder and am a Colorado native. I enjoy spending the summers hiking and backpacking in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Women’s Health Wise gave me the opportunity to learn from the expertise of Dr. Lane, as well as allowing me to relate to our patients on a personal level.
