We welcomed Nicole Jackson, DO, to the PeaceHealth Medical Group Cardiothoracic Surgery team of providers in 2021. Dr. Jackson comes to PeaceHealth from Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, Washington.

Dr. Jackson has medical interests in minimally invasive thoracic procedures (including video-assisted thoracoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery), aortic valve disorders and mediastinal masses.

“I strive to practice with kindness, understanding and patience during a difficult period in someone’s life. My goal is to optimize outcomes and deliver the highest level of care," she said.

Dr. Jackson is pleased to have landed in Bellingham. After all, she began her studies at Western Washington University, and most of her family is located in the Pacific Northwest or in Canada.

Outside of the operating room, Dr. Jackson enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, snowboarding/skiing, traveling and soccer. She and her husband, a project manager, share two wonderful daughters, each with a very different personality.
