Velia Martinez, PACPhysician Assistant
“I believe in the power of knowledge and faith, when it comes to medicine and well-being. The more you know about your body, the more control you have to make positive changes in your life. Exploring how your body functions gives you opportunities to succeed where others have not. I am here to share information to help you learn, but also make you feel heard and cared for during our medical visits.”

I love to be outdoors, by the lake on a jet ski or paddle board all summer long, but once the fall rolls around I am a complete home-body. I love puzzles, traveling, and learning new things.
I grew up in the border city of El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. Growing up I spent most of my summers walking to the Mexican side to visit family. Through my school years a love for medicine grew, and I made it a goal to find where I could best help others. I pursued a Bachelor’s degree in my hometown, then moved away for a Master’s degree, graduated, worked full time, and traveled to different countries for a year before starting my second Master’s degree to become a PA. I have no doubt my journey has shaped me and prepared me to be where I am. I love the population I serve, and what I do every day!
