MARIBEL MARTINEZ, FNP-BC

  

I was born and raised in Edinburg, TX where I attained a Bachelor’s then Master’s of Science in Nursing at the University of Texas Pan American. I have worked in the medical field since 2000 and have been practicing as a Family Nurse Practitioner since 2011.


I moved from south Texas, an area known for high obesity rates, to the Austin area, one of the fittest cities in the country, in 2012.


The impact obesity has had on family, friends and the majority of my patients has generated a strong desire in me to assist clients in their journey to a healthier way of life. I have worked at the North Austin Texas Weight Loss Clinic since 2014 and have witnessed amazing transformations.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (2018), “Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.”


I have witnessed some of our diabetic patients improve their conditions to the point where their primary care givers are able to discontinue some of their medications and patients who suffer with issues such as depression improve their quality of life through the assistance of our weight loss program.


I hope to be an inspiration to patients, through my own weight loss experience, as we transform into the best versions of ourselves: individually, as a family and as a culture.
