Nurse Practitioner, Rockwall
Lara Lovell loves how the focus in healthcare has shifted to wellness and feels it really makes a difference in the quality of life of her patients. As a nurse practitioner at our wellness and aesthetics center, Lara’s key responsibilities include:
- Performing clinical assessments, including physical exams and patient consultations.
- Identifying optimum goals for patient health outcomes.
- Developing treatment plans, prescribing treatments and monitoring progress to help ensure patients meet their goals.
- Educating patients about health and wellness, as well as treatment options available.
- Performing medical procedures in our clinics as needed.
In 1998, Lara received her master of science in nursing from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. During her career as a nurse practitioner, she honed her skills for 5 years in Tennessee, before moving to Dallas in 2003, where she practiced at Priority Health Center. Prior to joining our team, Lara was an NP at the Pediatric Clinic of Rockwall.
Lara’s NP career included 9 years in family practice and 8 years in pediatrics. In 2011 she partnered with our NP Tricia Lawler and other healthcare professionals to launch About Face Advanced Aesthetics, a company that provided aesthetic services to medical offices, salons and spas.
A Rockwall, Texas native, Lara married her high school sweetheart and Marine veteran Jesse. They lived in California and Tennessee, before returning to Texas 10 years ago. Lara and Jesse work hard to keep up with their three kids’ busy schedules, so you’ll find them cheering from the sidelines at volleyball, baseball, football and soccer games as well as tennis matches throughout the year.
