Heather Thomas is a graduate of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center Physician Assistant Program. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Colorado. Heather joins the staff at CNC after spending the first ten years of her career in Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine.
While working with younger patients, she spent a great deal of time counseling patients and their families about the importance of proper nutrition and adequate exercise. The key to healthy kids is having positive role models as parents. Heather is excited to have a positive impact on the entire family by assisting all family members to reach their weight management goals.
The most exciting aspect of being a Physician Assistant is being an integral part of a health care team. CNC lends itself to this by the interaction between the Physician, Physician Assistant, the dietitians, the psychotherapist and the incredibly attentive and knowledgeable front office staff. Education and disease prevention have always been at the forefront of the PA mission. It is a great opportunity to able to work with such a motivated patient population toward improved health.
Heather has a very busy life outside of CNC. She is the mother of three children. She and her family live in Parker and take advantage of everything the beautiful state of Colorado has to offer: skiing, biking, running, soccer, swimming, and hiking to name a few. Like many of our busiest patients, Heather tries to balance family, career and a healthy lifestyle.
