Dr. Miranda Nash, 36 Family, women’s health are her passion By Michael Ross
r. Miranda Nash, who specializes in internal medicine and practices at the Stephenville Medical and Surgical Clinic, comes by her profession by direct succession: Her father is Dr. David Boucher, also in internal medicine who works just down the hall. Miranda is married to someone readers are most likely familiar with, District Attorney Alan Nash. “We both went to high school here but he’s a few years older so we didn’t really know each other in those days. A mutual friend introduced us in 2009,
and we dated for awhile and got married in 2012. We have two little boys; Michael is three and Mathew is eighteen months,” Miranda said with a smile. Miranda is a Stephenville High School and Tarleton State University graduate, and went to medical school at Texas Tech, then did her residency at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Temple. “After finishing my residency, I spent another year there as chief resident then moved here in 2012,” she said. Asked if she specializes in any area within internal medicine, she replied, “It’s pretty generalized, I kind of like everything, that’s why I chose internal
medicine. “But I do see a lot of women in my practice. I work with men as well, but I think a lot of women feel a little more comfortable working with a female physician with certain things. “Women’s medicine is something I feel passionate and strongly about. A lot of women come in and say they’re so happy to have a woman practicing here, so that’s very gratifying.” The family attends First United Methodist Church. “I really love cooking and homemaker kinds of things, taking care of my family is a great joy for me,” Miranda said.
Dr. Miranda Nash is a wife and mother who finds joy in caring for her patients and family. Other interests include reading and music. “Since I grew up with music I love playing the piano,” she said. “I usually get my book recommendations from my mom, Vicky Johnson, who’s a professor at Tarleton. “Having grown up here we know a lot of people very well and we just feel so fortunate to live in this great community.” 27
