Grace Hughes

Although originally hailing from Chicago, Grace Hughes, PENT's newest staff member, spent parts of her childhood accompanying her family through Wisconsin, Colorado and other areas of Illinois. Grace graduated from North Park University in Chicago in 2010 with her Bachelor's of Science and major in Nursing. She then began her career as an inpatient registered nurse at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago for two years beginning in 2010.

Seeking to continue her education, Grace moved a little farther south in 2012 and graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio in 2015 with her Master's of Science in Nursing and as a Family Nurse Practitioner. After moving to San Antonio, she worked as an inpatient registered nurse at Metropolitan Methodist Hospital and then as an inpatient registered nurse at San Antonio Military Medical Center while she was working on her Master's degree. Throughout her Master's program, she gained experience in the areas of Pediatrics and Family Practice, among others, and she is looking forward to learning more about the specialty of Otolaryngology.

When Grace isn't working with the patients of PENT and their families, Grace loves to cook and bake as well as spend ample time outdoors and travel with her husband.
