Farewell from Dr. Mowry

To all my wonderful patients and families,  It is with a bittersweet heart that I’m writing to announce that I will be leaving Pediatric Associates of Austin in May to move to Denver, CO. While I am excited about this new adventure for my family, I will very much miss the patients, families and colleagues I have gotten to know over the past six years.  In pediatrics we have the privilege and joy  of being invited to walk alongside children and their parents as they change and grow,
when they are healthy and when they are ill.

From newborns to college students, exhausted first time parents to seasoned parents of teenagers, I’ve so enjoyed getting to know each of you and you’ve all taught me so much. It has truly been an honor and a joy to care for each of your families, and I’m thankful for the trust you have given me.

I know our amazing team of doctors, Advanced Practice Providers and nurses will continue to take excellent care of you and your families, just as they have my own children. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office.

On a personal note, I have a bulletin board full of drawings, photos and notes that will hang in my new office to remind me of PAA - if you have anything to add I’d love to take it along!
