Get to Know our Physician Assistants

We asked Jenah Manzano, PA-C and Lindsay Palmeri, FNP-C, of our Smithfield office, to share a bit about themselves so you can get to know them better.

Jenah Manzano, PA-C

Jenah received her Master of Science in physician assistant studies from Nova Southeastern University in Davie Florida.  Jenah is NCCPA board certified. She enjoys all aspects of family medicine, from pediatrics to geriatrics, with a special emphasis on wellness.

Q&A with Jenah:

What drew you to North Carolina?  North Carolina has great weather and still has changing seasons, which I love. And then there’s the good old southern hospitality of people in this area.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Hiking with my chocolate lab, Fenway. My dad is a huge Red Sox fan and gave him that name. 

What are some of your favorite books? My favorite books growing up were the Harry Potter series. I have probably reread the series at least 8 times! And still counting.

What’s one piece of advice you have received that has made a positive impact on your life? Live in the moment and enjoy it. Don’t stress about the future.

Are you a neat freak or comfortably messy? I’m a bit of both! I’m comfortably messy during the week and go on a cleaning frenzy on the weekends!

Lindsay Palmeri, FNP-C

Lindsay Palmeri, FNP-C, received her Master of Science in Nursing from Molloy College of Nursing in Rockville Centre, New York.  She is ANCC and AANP board certified with professional experience in primary care and emergency medicine.  She enjoys family medicine and looks forward to working with families in the Smithfield area.

Q&A with Lindsay

What drew you to North Carolina? I came to North Carolina for the beautiful weather and reasonable cost of living.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work? I love being outdoors!

What is your favorite book? The Shack

Which do you prefer, chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla! No chocolate for this girl! But really, my favorite dessert is creme brûlée!
