Mary Ann Hanson, PhD, ARNP

Best of Jax 2021 “Best Pediatrician”

Mary Ann Hanson

I became an RN in 1995 and then worked in labor & delivery, pediatrics, and inpatient child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. I returned to school and earned my Family Nurse Practitioner Master of Science in Nursing and then my Nursing PhD. My research focused maternal understanding of pediatric obesity.

I worked in pediatric primary care and as a nursing professor before staying home to start my family. I live in Fleming Island with my husband and three children. When I am not at work you will find me volunteering at school, church, and with youth organizations alongside the kids.  As a busy working mom, I can relate to families trying to keep kids healthy while balancing school and extracurricular activities. I enjoy educating families on preventative care especially healthy eating, activity, and immunizations.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Miami in 2012 and my master’s degree in Physician Assistant studies at Nova Southeastern University in 2015. I have had the privilege of working in pediatrics my entire career thus far. I strive to treat each patient as a whole person and I love getting to know families.  I am a native of Jacksonville, FL but currently reside in St Augustine. I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and helping with various ministries in my church.
