Emily Groce, FNP-C. While I was not born and raised here, I moved to East Texas in 2012 and I love it here! I graduated from Letourneau Univerisity with my Bachelor of Science In Health. I then graduated from UT Tyler with Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2016. I started my career of nursing at Longview Regional in the cardiac unit and then the emergency department. In 2021 I graduated with my Master of Science in Nursing. Since then I have worked in wound care and have discovered my love of working in the Urgent Care setting. 

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Colin, and our three dogs. I also enjoy sewing, baking, reading and traveling.
