Dr. Laura Pena grew up in Plano, Texas and completed her undergraduate education at Southern Methodist University. She graduated with degrees in biology, chemistry, and mathematics and went on to medical school at Baylor College of Medicine. With a lifelong love for children, she immediately knew she wanted to be a pediatrician. She stayed in Houston to do her residency training at Texas Children's Hospital, one of the top institutions in the nation for pediatric care. During her time in Houston, Laura met her now husband, Riley. They moved to Charlottesville, Virginia where Riley completed his medical training, and Laura worked for the University of Virginia as a general pediatrician and newborn hospitalist. Most recently, they lived in Portland, Oregon but are excited to be back home in Texas.
