I graduated with my BSN from the University of New Mexico in 2007. I started my career when I went to work in small rural ER in Tucumcari NM.


Although I loved New Mexico, Texas called and I knew it was time for me to pursue my dreams elsewhere. I took a job in the ER at Northwest Texas Hospital.

I started as a bedside nurse and worked my way to a Charge Nurse and onto the ER manager. During this time, I went back to school and graduated Suma Cume Lade in 2017 with my MSN FNP.

I began working alongside Dr. Walsh In January of 2018 and have been here ever since! She has imparted some invaluable knowledge and life lesson to me and for that I will be forever grateful!


I couldn’t leave the ER completely behind and currently I still work every so often in a small ER in the panhandle. I see everything from the sickest of the sick to minute old babies. And I love every second of it!

My husband and I currently live in Canyon, TX. 

We have 5 children that keep us exceptionally busy. Their ages range from 5 all the way up to 19 and so do their activities! You can usually find us running in between volleyball, football, soccer and t ball games! We also take the occasional trip to Lubbock to visit our red raider! If 5 kids wasn’t enough we also have 3 dogs and a fish. We have a busy life but it’s a life we love!

Crystal Kopenits

Office Manager

My journey began 15 years ago in May of 2006. I was a new mother and thought working in a pediatric clinic would be fun. I never imagined I would find my calling and "home" with this clinic. I started as receptionist and have worked my way to office manager.

I enjoy building life long relationships with out patients. Our families are more than a paycheck; they become our friends. 

My girlfriend, Kim, and I live life to the fullest. We enjoy family time, friend time, live music, and making each other laugh. We are raising two beautiful girls, Ashlyn (15) and Kynzie (6). We recently became a family of 6 with the addition of our puppies, Stella and Luke.

Life is AMAZING and we cherish EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. 

Brisa Hielo

Medical Assistant

Hello! My name is Brisa.  I have worked in pediatrics a total of 4 years and 2 of those have been in this office. I am currently raising 2 doggies named Captain and Blue. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews. 

I am a self-proclaimed make-up conisure and love everything in this realm. 

I love what I do and the family we have created.

Cindy Nelson

Clinical Manager/Medical Assistant

I have been with the clinic for 15 years and have watched many of our patients grow into adults. When I started here, I had just left from working in pediatrics at the hospital. I needed a change but wanted to stick to working with children. Throgh the years of working at the office, I have played many roles.  I started as a receptionist. moved to clinical staff when I became a medical assistant, and then moved to billing. 

I guess you could say that I've worked every position in this office. 

Outside of work, I enjoy family time. I have been married to my best friend, Buck, for 16 years and we have two wonderful children. Remi is 15 and Wes is 12.  We enjoy the outdoors; rodeo, hunting, fishing, and football. 


We love it all.  

Desarea Varela

Medical Assistant

I have been with this office for 3 years. I am a mommy of two awesome kiddos!  Ayden is 8 years old and Evelyn is 6. I am also married to my awesome husband, Eric. 

And obviously, we can't forget our fur baby Oreo. 

My favorite part of working in peds is watching our patients grow. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my spare time, I am a TikTok enthusiast and a Starbucks fangirl. 

I love this work family so much.  


Nicole and her staff make you feel like part of her family. We were nervous about choosing a healthcare provider but she put our worries to ease. She really listens to every one of your concerns and helps you best advocate for your child.
