Personal:
I am a Canadian by birth! I was born in the small town of Winkler, Manitoba. My mom is Canadian and my dad is American. They met more than 30 years ago as teenagers working at a Bible camp in Canada. My parents, my sister, and I moved to Texas when I was 12 years old to be closer to my dad’s parents.

Dr. Navarro attends Baptist Temple in McAllen. Her husband, Arturo enjoys preaching as a traveling evangelist so they often visit many different churches along the border.

Music, traveling, and missions!

Why did you decide to become a doctor?
“I was a patient in the hospital as a young child. I believe this is what sparked my interest in the medical field. I am thankful that the Lord has allowed me to train in family medicine.”

Travels / Mission
“I love to travel and do mission work. As a teenager I traveled with Teen Missions International to France, Switzerland, Estonia, Russia, and East Africa. I participated in work and evangelism projects during these trips. More recently I have participated in medical clinics held across the border in Mexico. I have also enjoyed three short term mission trips to Shell, Ecuador to serve at the HCJB Global ministry hospital.”
