Heidi completed her undergraduate training at The Pennsylvania State University, majoring in Life Science, then traveled south to Durham, NC for her physician assistant studies at the Duke University School of Medicine PA Program. Upon graduation, she pursued a highly sought-after PA fellowship in Hospital Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. During her training, she found her passion for medical oncology and palliative care, which brought her to Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, where she practiced as part of the inpatient medical oncology and palliative care teams for almost five years. Ready for the next step in her career, she relocated to New York City and practiced in Breast Medical Oncology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Heidi developed a special connection with her patients, guiding and supporting them during breast cancer treatment. She learned from her patients that breast reconstruction is a profoundly important part of this journey for many women. Passionate about bringing her years of experience in breast medical oncology to the realm of breast reconstructive plastic surgery, Heidi moved to Austin to join Dr. Potter’s practice in 2022. She is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) and is board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA). She is proud to be part of an exceptional team focused on providing the highest level of patient care.
