I am the owner and director of Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. I have been in the medical field for over 35 years. I started at the age of 15 driving an ambulance, along with my two brothers in the small town of Sulphur Springs, TX. I moved to Arlington, TX when I was 18 years old and started working at Arlington Memorial Hospital to pay for college. I held various positions while at the hospital. I started at the bottom cleaning and sterilizing surgical instruments to working my way up to scrub tech in the emergency room. I did just about everything you could do at the hospital from running EKGs to drawing blood to assisting during surgical procedures. After the death of my mother Peggy Stillwagoner, I decided to leave the hospital and become a police officer. Even as a police officer, I stayed in the medical field, as I was a tactical medic on swat. I actually worked in every division as a police officer throughout my 25-year career. I retired from police work in 2016 to devote all my time to our students at Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. I am also a licensed combative sports referee in Texas. I love to be part of a good fight. It is my passion to help others help themselves and I will be doing this as long as the good Lord is willing.
I, along with my husband Birchie, are the owners of Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. My motto is "you do not have to do one thing your whole life. You can do anything! At any time!". I tell this to every class we have. Because I have done many things during my 47 years. I have worked retail, the oil field, and owned my own salon in the Texas Panhandle. I have always had a heart for helping people whether it be helping them to be healthy by teaching fitness classes or developing their skills as a phlebotomy technician or an EKG technician. My passion now is my students at Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. It is so exciting and fulfilling to see a student complete their first stick. It is a feeling that never gets old.
I am the son of Birchie and Sharon. According to them, I am the hardest working employee at Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. I am the Chief Maintenance Engineer. I love to come visit the schools and help out when I can. I love music, podcasts and my family most of all! I am always willing to volunteer for our students to stick me and help them anyway I can to graduate from Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC.
I am a certified instructor at Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. I am the daughter of Birchie and Sharon Stillwagoner and have been with them since the beginning of their school 5 years ago. I am a certified phlebotomy technician, certified EKG technician, and a certified BLS instructor. I teach phlebotomy, EKG, and BLS classes. I am also the resume writer for LSP. Before I started full time at LSP, I worked for America's Best as the Contact Lens manager. Both sets of my parents are in the medical field so it seemed to be the obvious choice for me. Through my parents, I have learned how rewarding it is to help others any way I can. I enjoy teaching my students new skills so they can find employment and provide for their families. I plan to carry this tradition on to my children.
I am the adopted daughter of Sharon and Birchie, not officially. Haile and I have been friends since childhood, so I consider them all my family. I have had experience in various fields. I am an instructor of all offered courses at Lone Star Phlebotomy LLC. I am a certified phlebotomist, EKG technician, Medical assistant, and BLS certified. I myself have a passion for learning, trying, and doing new things so my hope is to inspire everyone I meet to never stop growing! I enjoy being able to pass my knowledge and skills to our students at LSP and hope to do so for a very long time. I can't wait to meet you! Welcome to the family!
