Lives of Doctor Wives: Welcom Sharon!

Welcom Sharon!

Hi My name is Sharon Robinson.

My husband is a family medicine physician in Lubbock, Texas. He started med school in 1990 at the age of 41 at Texas Tech School of Medicine. At that time, our oldest daughter was a freshman at Texas Tech, our youngest daughter was in the 5th grade and I was a first year PhD student in Experimental Psychology.

Oh, how I wish there were blogs such as this back then. My husband is a solo FP in Lubbock. He is also does emergency medicine, is on adjunct faculty at TTUHSC, is medical director of a school local school district, is president elect of the medical society and is medical director of a small rural EMS. I am an experimental psychologist who does not practice anymore. I also have a degree in Finance and I run his medical practice. I spent several years as a hospital accountant for Parkland Hospital and Harris Methodist Hospital in Dallas and Fort Worth, respectively. I am a very active member of the medical alliance locally and at the state level. I serve on the TMA Council on Practice Manangement and on the TMA ad-hoc HIT Committee.

As if I did not have enough to do, I decided to return to school (for the upteenth time) and pursue a second degree BSN at TTU School of Nursing. This is a sixty hour course cirriculum completed in 12 months. After I finish the 2degree BSN, I will start in the Nurse Practitioner Masters Program and should complete that in 36 hours. I might also add that the 41 year old medical student is now a 61 year old solo FP and the "wife" is 56 years old. We run rings and circles around not only our age peers, but those much older. My husband is a faculty mentor to MSI at TTUHSC. Needless to say, they send us the "old ones" to nurture.

I would love to be a contributor to your blog. Let me know if I can be of help. I am on Twitter as Greendaisygirl, Facebook, LinkedIn and Plaxo if you want to check me out.

Sharon Robinson, BBA, MALubbock, Texas

Hi Sharon!
I'm in Lubbock as well. My husband is PGY-4 Anesthesia, and will be doing a pain fellowship at Texas Tech next July. I just paid my dues for the local Alliance the other day and have been a member of the tech med alliance for 8 years (husband has been here since med school).

Nice to see you on here.
