Fun Facts

Dr. Horner says some advice that has truly influenced her life came from a mural on the wall of the gymnastics class when she was young. It was a quote by Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

The most interesting place Dr. Horner has visited is Lima, Peru, where she participated in a medical mission trip in nearby villages. The experience reinforced to her that she’s doing exactly what she was born to do.

It may not be widely known, but Dr. Horner grew up in Katy, where she attended Cinco Ranch High School.


​My philosophy on patient care is careful listening and building trust. Since every woman is unique, I want to get to know my patient as a person. We can then develop a plan together that is individualized to her needs and achieve a positive outcome.
