About Us

I am a family practice physician.  I grew up in Pennsylvania and went to undergraduate school at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. 

I went to medical school at University of North Texas Health Science Center -Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

I am married to George Van Horn and  we have a thirteen year old son named Walker.  We love the outdoors and enjoy going boating on the lake. We enjoy gardening, fishing, and traveling as well. 

We also love animals and currently have seven cats and four dogs, and hope to soon have chickens and goats.

I enjoy being a family physician and have a strong interest in preventive medicine and nutrition. 

I also enjoy discussing healthy diets and exercise routines with my patients.  I like being able to discuss alternatives to prescription medicine if possible, although I routinely prescribe medications when they are needed.

I enjoy reading about the biochemistry of food and role of vitamins and nutrients in the body.  I also like to discuss fitness.
I received my B.A in Biology from Lafayette College. In medical school, at TCOM, I  received a DO degree as well as a Masters in Public Health and Preventive Medicine. 

I am board certified in Family Medicine.  My family and I recently relocated to Ennis Texas after leaving my practice in Redding, California of seven years.
