I am a native West Texan blessed by an amazing wife and 4 daughters, who happens to practice medicine in my spare time when I am not herding cats.
I volunteer at Heal the City because this is a dream God has given me to pursue and make a difference in my hometown
I have been a real estate appraiser and Amarillo resident for 36 years. We are all called to a life of service in the Lord, and HTC represents the most critical service to the most in need in our community.
For 17 years I have been in private pediatric practice at Amarillo Children's Clinic. I have been blessed to serve impoverished children in third world countries on short mission trips over the past 10 years. This was a very rewarding experience for me. I was very excited to when given the opportunity to serve children in our local area that have limited access to medical care. I passionate about the children, and I feel Heal the City meets a need that was previously not filled in the community.
I am a longtime community volunteer with a passion for helping others, especially in health care. Heal The City for me is a "Humanitarian" mission, which is why I volunteer.
I serve as Chief Executive Officer of Amarillo Urology Associates and AUA Surgical Center. In addition to a BS in Accounting and an MBA in Healthcare Management, I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Master Black Belt.
I have been fortunate enough to be a sounding board for many years to Dr. Keister and his idea for a free medical clinic to help the underserved in Amarillo. I am honored to serve on the Heal The City board and it is truly amazing to see God’s hand at work through Heal the City.
I am long time Amarillo resident and owner of a truck dealership group that has operated in the Amarillo market for over 40 years. I am blessed to be on the Heal the City board to see firsthand the tremendous amount of "healing" our organization has done and will be doing for the citizens of our community.
I’m Rodney Young, and I’m a family physician and Chair of the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Amarillo. I serve on the board of directors and as a volunteer physician with Heal the City because I know that what we do changes lives and offers hope to so many, where there was little hope before. “…Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
I am a registered pharmacist that has worked at Eli Lilly 25 years in various roles including sales, management, and HR. I am involved at HTC because every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. The health of our city is critical to the future of our city.
My name is Jan Swan, and I am an anesthesiologist. I volunteer at HTC because it allows me to share the wealth of my education. I have time to sit and listen, look and see, share a problem and give compassion. It allows the spread of health and spiritual knowledge unhitched from the rabid business of my usual medical life. I have joy when working beside my beloved peers. I also learn and gain new information weekly about medicine, the profession to which I am dedicated and indebted.
I am married to a wonderful man Mitchell, and we have two boys, Carson and Hudson, that keep us running! I started volunteering at Heal the City when the doors opened and have now become part of the amazing staff. God commands us to serve, and I am honored to be a part of Jesus moving every week in our own community. 1 Peter 4:10
I am a wife, mom, and full time student currently pursuing my goal of obtaining a bachelors degree. I am thrilled to be a part of HTC and look forward to the growth of HTC Shalom.
I am a wife to an amazing husband, Jerry, and a mom to three children. I have been a nurse for 19 years and a nurse practitioner for 13 of those years. I love serving at Heal the City free clinic. As a provider, I have the opportunity to share God’s love and hope as I partner with our patients, and their families, in their health journeys by offering them treatment, guidance, teaching, prayer, encouragement, and celebration. The adversities, circumstances and battles that our patients have overcome, or are trying to overcome, are a blessing and inspiration to me daily. I am blessed to be a part of a staff who’s work is to build God’s Kingdom and who is reaching out to offer God’s hope in their brokenness, not only in their health and healing, but investing in their lives as a whole person. Isaiah 61
There's no other place I'd rather be.
I started at Heal the City as a Spanish translator, but being at this clinic week after week has inspiried me to attend nursing school. Heal the City has brought a multitude of blessings to my life, all of which have steered me in a more positive direction overall.
I have been blessed to be born and raised in the wonderful city of Amarillo. I went to school and church here as well as met and married my wonderful husband Ricky here. Now I am part of a great ministry in which I can serve my community as a pharmacist. I am so thankful to be a part of Heal the City and to be given the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives.
I started interning at Heal the City in the Fall of 2018, and week by week, I have had the great joy of being a part of this mission. I am grateful that God has called me to this amazing opportunity to give back to the community I love and serve our patients while on their wellness journey. I am a Tascosa High School graduate, and a current Social Work student at West Texas A&M University, where I will be obtaining my bachelor’s degree from in May! When I am not at HTC, I am working as a service agent at an insurance agency here in Amarillo, spending time with my family or practicing modern calligraphy.
I am married to my best friend of almost 21 years, Brandon (April) and mother of two wonderful girls. After working as a dental hygienist in a private practice for 18 years, I was offered the gift to head up the dental clinic at Heal The City. On my days off, I enjoy playing tennis, volleyball, and watching the Duke Blue Devil basketball team. I also volunteer in other areas in our great community.
I am a wife and mother to a sweet little boy. I am a first generation college student and am honored to be working at Heal the City while still pursuing my dream of having a Masters Degree.

I arrived to Heal the City as a volunteer in 2017. I fell in love with the belief of Humanism and fell in love with the presence of God as soon as you walked through Heal the City’s doors. To serve the community of the panhandle and surrounding areas with dignity and respect is a tremendous privilege and blessing. I graduated from PDHS, and AACAL with a specialty in health science and am currently also a full time student with the ultimate goal of obtaining a masters degree. It is humbling and gratifying to touch patients lives each and every day while staying true to our mission. Galatians 5:13
I am the wife to an amazing rancher. We live to serve not to be served Mark 10:45. I arrived to HTC on July 2018, I previously worked at Arrow Child and Family Ministrys and Amarillo Children's Home serving little ones in need of love and compassion and someone to trust. It is a privilege to now work and serve for such an amazing ministry feeling God’s presence at every angle.
I graduated from Caprock High School in 2010. I attended Amarillo College and Vista College. I worked for a Neurologist for two years, and found out about Heal the City and the amazing work they do for their patients. I am now a CMA at Heal the City, and I can say with great pride and joy the love and respect that I have for my job and every single one of our patients.

I am a graduate from Caprock High school and Amarillo College but still a full-time student at West Texas A&M working on my bachelor’s degree in biology. Once my bachelor’s degree is accomplished I plan to go to Optometry school in Houston. I started at Heal the City as a Spanish translator and then was given the privilege to take the role as Vision Coordinator. Since August I have been able to give 120 patients a free eye exam and a pair of glasses and the look on their face as they receive this service is priceless. I thank the Lord for this opportunity and look forward to continuing helping take care of his gift of sight.
I am a father of 3 sons and a daughter. My wife and I have been married for 18 years this April. I am from Massachusetts and I’m a fan of the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins. I have been in ministry for more than 25 years most of those in ministry to youth and their families. I love to play ultimate frisbee, disc golf and guitar and I love to watch my kids play sports. We love Amarillo, but miss the trees and the ocean.
I am excited for this new chapter as chaplain to the patients and staff here at Heal the City.
I am a mother to five wonderful blessings. I have had the joy to be married to my best friend for 15 years! Life takes us down many roads and I believe we are all on this journey to serve these wonderful patients today because of what life has put us through. All roads lead to our Savior. No matter our past, what matters is today. Today we are here to serve Him and continue to make a difference.
“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
