Isuri Nagahawatta is a Clinical Navigator for the North Lamar location. With over 8+ years of healthcare experience, she comes from a laboratory medicine background and is newer to pain management. She received her Bachelor’s in Biology from St. Edward’s University and Master’s in Healthcare Administration from Colorado State University.
She is originally from Southern California, but has lived in Austin for about a decade now. She loves to travel and enjoys going on weekend getaways with her husband and two kids.
She recognizes what an integral role navigators play in improving patient care and is very excited to be a part of a dynamic team of dedicated colleagues and mentors. Because every patient experiences pain differently, her goal is to help patients by embracing a more humanistic way of interacting with an open mind.
