Dr. Variste’s desire for pediatrics began at a very young age.
Later she fulfilled her dream and obtained her Medical Degree from
the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She went on to
complete a pediatric residency at UT Houston Health Science Center.
After residency, she returned to practice in her hometown of
College Station, Texas. Dr. Variste is grateful for the five years
she spent treating the families there and for the relationships and
connections she's made.
As a board-certified pediatrician, her passion is to empower
moms and dads to raise their kids to lead happy, healthy lives full
of positive memories and discovery. She desires to create the same
positive experiences for her patients that she had with her
pediatrician as a young child. Dr. Variste is thankful to be a new
member of the team at Family First Pediatrics and is excited about
the new relationships to be made.
