About Jennifer Jiang


As an army brat, Dr. Jiang lived in Washington, Texas, Maryland, Hawaii and California. She moved with her family from Columbia, MO, to Cape Girardeau in 2009, for my husband, Dr. Peter Jiang, to join an Infectious Disease Practice. Dr. Jiang can be found spending the majority of her free time with her daughter, Eleanor, 15, whose greatest passions are horseback riding, choir, band, artistic endeavors and anything involving live animals. They have also enjoyed reading hundreds of books together and traveling (most frequently to Kansas City, to visit family). If life would ever slow down, Dr. Jiang would like to get back to working on her family history-photo albums (which currently go back seven generations), and to editing her chapter book series for reluctant readers, which she hopes to get published, some day.
