Katherine Nickell, PA-C

Katherine Nickell was born and raised in the Dallas area. She completed her Bachelor’s degree with honors at the University of Dallas and then her Master of Physician Assistant Studies at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2012.

Her most rewarding and influential experience was volunteering for a year in an NGO/non-profit pediatric HIV/AIDS clinic in Cape Town, South Africa, immediately after graduating PA school. Since then, she has pursued her passion of working with kids with close to 10 years of experience in various pediatric care settings to include general practice, urgent care centers, and emergency departments— notable Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin.

Her professional interests include increasing access to community resources for her patients to reduce emergency room and sick visits, supporting new mothers in their new and challenging journey, antibiotic stewardship, and infectious diseases. She is so grateful to be able to converse in Spanish, Vietnamese, and English with her patients and their families and to work in a clinic that serves and celebrates a diverse community. She also enjoys mentoring and hosting future PA students.

When not attending to her patients, you can find her knitting, pursuing culinary adventures, enjoying the traditional dishes of her Vietnamese heritage, and making memories with her husband of 12+ years and two young kiddos.
