I joined Hospice of Lubbock November 1, 2010 in preparation for changes
in Medicare guidelines that required a Face-to-Face visit from a physician
or nurse practitioner beginning January 1, 2011. Born and raised in West
Texas, I completed my undergraduate studies at Texas Tech University with
a BA in Music. I then spent 8 years in Houston at The University of Texas
Health Sciences Center at Houston where I completed medical school and
a 4 year combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. I found
my calling into the world of hospice and palliative medicine based on
a patient encounter 5 months before I finished residency. In 2015, I completed
the requirements for and passed the Hospice Medical Director Certified
Board exam. I was recognized as Covenant’s Values in Action award
winner for Excellence in 2013. Also in 2013, I was able to fulfill the
dream of a lifetime by being cast in Moonlight Musical’s local production
of Les Miserables with the incomparable David Gaschen as Jean Valjean.
Since July 2017, I have also served as the Executive Director for Hospice
of Lubbock. I am inspired everyday by our caregivers (employees) and the
passion and compassion with which they serve our patients, their families,
and each other. I am truly blessed.
