Andrea (Surgical Scheduler and Lead Manager)

Hello! I am a prospective medical student with dreams of becoming a physician. I like to learn, love the field of medicine, and enjoy helping others. I hope to one day impact others lives through medicine. I have two bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in Biology and Psychology and attended the University of North Texas Health Science Center for my master’s degree in Medical Science. My interests and hobbies include reading, beauty, and skincare. I also LOVE food! Most of my time spent out of work involves me going out to different restaurants and spots and yummy food. One weird thing that I do is that when I find something cute and adorable, my voice gets extremely squeaky and high pitched.

Melody (Medical Assistant)

For as long as I can remember I have always been interested in the medical field. In the future, would really like to go back to school to get my nursing degree and become a surgical nurse. I love helping my patients to the best of my ability. I look forward to seeing my patients everyday and meeting new patients. My favorite color is purple. I like Anime, Marvel Comics and my favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. Something weird I do is quote memes and vines everyday
