New Nurse Practitioner Joining Community

Nov 22, 2019 /


Uvalde Family Practice Association (UFPA) is pleased to announce the addition of Emily Schorr, board certified Family Nurse Practicioner (FNP-BC), to their practice. Emily practices family medicine and has diverse work experiences, including primary and family care, pediatrics, and home health and hospice. She will be joining physician Cherie L. Hauptmeier, D.O., along with nurse practitioners Morgan Rowell, FNP-BC and Jane Champion, FNP-BC.

Emily earned her Bachelor of Science in nursing and Master’s of Science in nursing both from Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi. During her time at A&M she received the O’Neill Award for Caring, awarded to a single student per graduating class who models academic excellence and exceptional patient-centered care.

Emily has worked previously as a family nurse practicioner at Lone Star Family Medicine in Pleasanton. As a registered nurse Emily worked at CHRISTUS – Children’s Hospital of San Antonio providing care on their pediatric intermediate care unit for chronically and critically ill patients. At CHRISTUS she achieved the highest clinical ladder possible in just two years. She was also a Daisy Award Nominee at CHRISTUS, a recognition awarded by patients and their families to exceptional nurses for outstanding care, patient satisfaction, and sincere patient rapport.

Emily is a Castroville native and now resides in Devine with her husband and son. She is excited to be a part of the Uvalde community as she is passionate about rural, underserved patient care populations.

“I am thrilled to join Uvalde Family Practice. I knew the first time I met Dr. Wegrzyn and saw the practice that it was where I wanted to be,” Emily said.

“A clinic in a rural underserved area was exactly what I wanted – it really is my dream job,” Emily added.

Emily has begun seeing patients of Uvalde Family Practice Association located at 1800 Garner Field Road. Uvalde Family Practice is also pleased to have Dr. Steve Garza, Dr. Kevin Uptergrove, Dr. Erika Garcia, and Dr. David White providing clinical coverage for patients while Dr. Cherie Hauptmeier is on a short leave. UFPA is actively recruiting and looks forward to the addition of a new doctor on their staff in the coming months.
