Evelyn is Walnut Hill’s Nurse Manager and oversees our amazing team of nurses and technicians. She joined Walnut Hill OBGYN Associates in 1989 as a staff nurse working with Dr. Jeffrey Thurston. Shortly after, her role within the practice grew to include that of Clinical Nurse Manager. She not only continues to be involved with direct patient care but uses her leadership and management skills to facilitate the office staff whether it be the physicians or the clinical staff to be sure quality patient care is delivered every single day.
One of the most rewarding aspects of her long-term employment has been the relationships she has been able to develop and maintain with many Walnut Hill OBGYN patients over the years.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing with Distinction from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Becoming a nurse was a no brainer. Evelyn hails from a long line of family members with careers in medicine. Her father was a prominent internist in Waco, Texas, practicing well into his eighties. She has numerous other relatives with health care related careers, some of which include physicians, nurses, and even a veterinarian. Whether it was family influences or just a love of helping take care of people, Evelyn feels that becoming a nurse has been her true calling.
When she is not caring for our patients at Walnut Hill OBGYN, Evelyn enjoys spending time with her husband, three children, and four grandchildren. She still finds time to get in her Orange Theory Fitness workouts and play some Pickleball
