Dr. Shumate earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry at Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, Oklahoma. She attended medical school at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and graduated in 2014. She completed her Pediatrics Residency at The Children’s Hospital of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City from 2014 to 2017. She is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. Shumate joined our team in 2017. She provides well-child, acute care, and mental health appointments at the Coppell Office.
“When I was 6 years old, my class took a field trip to our local hospital for a ‘Teddy Bear Clinic’ where the nurses and doctors helped us patch up our favorite stuffed animals. I was sold on the whole event – the hospital, taking care of others, learning about science. As I grew older, I continued to love the science of medicine and working with kids. My patients in residency were the ultimate confirmation that I loved pediatrics. I am passionate about caring for the most precious and vulnerable members of our society, and I am truly blessed to be living my childhood dream.”
Dr. Shumate resides in Coppell with her husband Riley and their daughters. She has lived in various places, but still identifies as a Georgia Peach at heart. Her favorite thing to do is spend time with her husband and quickly-growing children. Other hobbies include basketball, coffee-drinking, and classical piano.
