ABOUT JENNIFER BYRNES, PA-C

Jennifer is a huge people person and has always loved medicine since she was little and knew the healthcare career would be her passion. In college, she discovered the Physician Assistant profession and fell in love with it.

Jennifer moved to Dallas, Texas, to attend UT Southwestern School in Dallas to participate in the Physician Assistant program.
