Hello! My name is Elisa and I am the assistant to the assistants. My duties are to make sure the clinical assistants and Dr. Studebaker have the right tools for every patient. Working in such a great facility has taught me to cherish every little detail and that even the small things can give some positive feedback to my colleagues and patients.
Currently, I am a full-time student at Sam Houston State University and I am studying in the pre-nursing program. My main goal is to become a registered nurse who works in either critical care or emergency care at a well-known facility such as Baylor Scott & White Health clinic. When I am not too busy, I love to read, spend time with family, and play the guitar or piano.
Bio coming soon...
