Jacqueline Cropper, APRN, FNP-BC, IBCLC, PMH-C


Jacqueline (Jackie) earned her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and commissioned as a Registered Nurse in the US Air Force in 2009. She served as a labor and delivery nurse caring for our active duty military members and their families. Jackie quickly realized there was a significant lack of knowledge about lactation and breastfeeding among her healthcare colleagues. As a second lieutenant Jackie became one of two Certified Lactation Counselors (CLC) within the medical group and co-established a base breastfeeding support group.


Jackie has worked as a Registered Nurse in Maternal-Child nursing since 2009 and has been an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2013.  She earned her Masters of Science as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2020 with the primary goal of providing expert care to new families. In addition to her extensive training and self-study of lactation care, Jackie has sought out additional training to competently provide care for families who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns related to having a new baby. She is certified in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.


The Knapp Clinic's mission is to provide compassionate comprehensive lactation and perinatal mental health care to families during their childbearing years.

Wow, where do I begin with Jackie Cropper! She is one of the most knowledgeable and caring Nurse Practitioners I have ever met. She loves what she does, loves her patients, and that shows through in every part of her care.

She was in the room for the delivery of our daughter, also helped in recovery, and for months after. She was there for every question and hard moment we had. She brought so much education and love to our challenges with breastfeeding. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, I would not have had the amazing 2 years of breastfeeding success without her knowledge, care, and help in all of those hard moments. She truly is a gift to everyone she comes in contact with.
