I was always fascinated by the human body, and I loved to read and learn. My mother is a Nurse Practitioner, and when I was young, she would sometimes bring me to work, and I loved watching her care for families and children. Pediatrics makes me happy to go to work every day and I know it is where I am meant to be. Because every child is unique, it is so important to me to get to know them and their families in order to provide the best care, and my goal, first and foremost, is to listen. I enjoy empowering parents and caregivers to create safe and healthy environments where their children can thrive.
Dr. Lopez grew up in Dallas, TX. When she’s not caring for patients, Dr. Lopez enjoys spending time with her husband and two little girls, exploring some of Austin’s awesome trails, trying new recipes, traveling, and reading a good book. She loves visiting the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, especially when it isn’t too hot!
