Each month we will have a blog post spotlighting individuals from the ambulatory division. Spotlighting employees will be an opportunity for other individuals from different departments/areas to meet and learn about others.
For the Month of May meet Travis Demarest and Dr. Jennifer Caffey.

Favorite Food: I love ALL food, except ice cream and honey.
I wish I knew how…to fly.
Dr. Jennifer Caffey
League City Provider
About me/my family: I grew up in Northwest Houston and attended Texas A&M for my undergraduate degree (Whoop!) I then went to UNT Health Science Center for Medical School and did my pediatric residency at UTMB. I left for a few years, but found my way back home to UTMB.
My pets:I have a dog named Ellie who pretty much is like my child. She is a terrier mix pound puppy who loves to travel with me, snuggle, and burrow under the covers.
One thing most people don’t know about me: I enjoy volunteering my time. I have been a member of the Junior League of Galveston County for 7 years now and love volunteering in the community. We are a group of women who are passionate about helping out in Galveston County. It is also a great way to meet new people in the community.
What are your hobbies and interests: I love to read. I always have my kindle with me in case there is some free time to read. I am in a book club so there is a new book to read every month. I also enjoy traveling; the more exotic the better, but I also love just a relaxing beach getaway. I am adventurous and love to go boating, sailing, and swimming.
My best vacation: This is a difficult choice because of my love of travel. I think Alaska was my favorite trip I have taken so far. I enjoyed the beautiful glaciers, whale watching, dog sledding, salmon fishing, and wildlife viewing. It was an amazing adventure with beautiful sights to see.
Thanks for sharing Travis and Dr. Caffey.
