After graduating from Wichita State University with two degrees, Gabbi has nearly twenty years of experience in emergency, urgent care, family practice, hospital medicine and cardiology. Family ties include three beautiful daughters and five grandchildren in her home state of Kansas. She recently worked in an emergency department in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island on the coast of Maine and hiked in the magnificent Acadia National Park. She moved to New Braunfels in 2017 with her husband and brother. Leisure time activities include art, music of all genres, reading, watching movies and spending time outdoors and with family. Family life is blessed by Beckham, a one-hundred-pound shepherd-husky mix and Kazi, a brilliant quirky rescue dog.
Interests include exploration of the intricacies of myofascial pain as well as all aspects of pain management. My goal is to develop a partnership to work with patients to create a multimodal treatment plan to live life to the fullest potential within the physical limitations you face, not to be restricted or defined by your pain.
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church….a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.”
