My name is Lucy Garcia. I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas.
My career started when I decided to attend South Texas High School for Health Professions (Med High) in Mercedes, Texas. Soon after graduating from Med High, I began working as a nurse aide. I have worked hard since to climb the professional ladder.
I attended Texas Southmost College and became a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). While working as an LVN, I earned an Associate Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB). I worked as a Registered Nurse and towards my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing at UTB. The opportunity to attend grad school arrived soon after. I earned a Master of Science in Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner Degree in May 2016 from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) in Edinburg.
I have worked for 23 years as a nurse, 17 of those as a registered nurse. I am married and have three beautiful children ages fifteen, nine, and three. I am thankful for the opportunity to work as a Family Nurse Practitioner and join the team of professionals at Su Clinica. I look forward to providing healthcare services to the community in my new role as a provider.
