About Destiny Jefferson, APRN
Destiny Jefferson, APRN, AGACNP, FNP is a registered nurse practitioner at the White-Wilson Pulmonology, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine Clinic in Fort Walton Beach. Having lost her father and grandparents in her early teens, the positive experiences APRN Jefferson had with their health care teams inspired her to pursue the field herself. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Southern Mississippi in Long Beach, MS and, later, her Masters of Science in Nursing and Post-Masters Certificate - Adult-Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioner from the University of South Alabama in Mobile.

With extensive experience managing and caring for complex, critical care patients, APRN Jefferson prides herself on working collaboratively with her patients to provide the best care and outcomes. She works alongside White-Wilson's team of pulmonary physicians to provide respiratory care to patients at our Fort Walton Beach location.

When not caring for patients, APRN Jefferson enjoys traveling with her husband, knitting, reading, kayaking and doing yoga. Joining her and her husband on the Emerald Coast are their four fur-babies, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
