Carolyn Hodges, NP-C

Before coming to UT Cardiology, Carolyn Hodges spent eleven years working in the CVICU. During that time, she developed a passion for cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery. Caring for patients in the ICU fueled her desire to pursue her MSN, and to provide preventative care and guidance in the outpatient setting.

Carolyn earned both her undergraduate and MSN at East Tennessee State University, and is board-certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

When discussing her career as a Nurse Practitioner, Carolyn says that the most rewarding aspect of her role is being able to positively impact the lives of her patients. The relationships she develops with them and their families, and the education she can provide are great sources of satisfaction in the job.

When she's not at work, Carolyn enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. For fun, she likes paddle boarding and attending concerts with her husband.
