Jessica Raines joined the The Carithers Pediatric Group in September 2018. She received her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama in December 2013 and is board certified in pediatrics. She was employed as a Registered Nurse for The Carithers Pediatric Group from 2003-2009 before moving to Valdosta, GA, but returned to live in St. Augustine last June with her family. She is married to Richard and they have 5 children, ages 12 to 19 years, and Cody, a golden retriever. She loves her family, career, traveling, walking on the beach, fishing, cooking, and cheering for the Gators, but more than anything, the love of her life is Jesus. She and her family attend The Church of Eleven22 and is excited to get involved once again in church ministry, serving God locally and participating in medical missions. Jessica is excited to rejoin Carithers as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and looks forward to caring for the patients and their families.
