University of Texas at San Antonio
Hi, I’m Amy! My childhood home is in the central plains of Texas, where I grew up in a small town called Marlin. An interesting fact about the town is that it used to be much more popular during the late 19th to mid-20th century with tourists due to having naturally occurring hot mineral water! Several bath houses were built touting its medicinal properties. The popularity of using hot mineral water as a therapy declined with the advent of penicillin and antibiotics after WWII, but there are three remaining active wells at Marlin and the local hospital in the town is still heated via the mineral waters!
I went to high school at Marlin, and attended the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor where I earned a dual degree in Biology and Chemistry. There, I was lucky to be accepted into the Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) and, eventually, into the University of Texas at San Antonio for my medical education.
My clinical interests are in rural medicine, broad-spectrum family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, addiction medicine, and more recently, wilderness medicine! Retrospectively, I think I’m just about interested in most fields of medicine, and I’m excited to start my training at Full Circle Health. I loved the rural area I grew up in and the tight knit community there- it’s my goal to be able to come back to a community similar to where I grew up with robust training that allows me to meet their needs.
Outside of medicine, I love to hike, ice-skate, rollerblade, bike, skateboard, draw and read! Having never lived so far north, Leon (my cat) and I look forward to exploring Boise!
