Sarah Aguilar, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
Sarah Aguilar is a family nurse practitioner, who has specialized in sleep medicine and neurology, for over ten years. She has become well-known in her field, as she speaks nationally to her peers about the debilitating disorder narcolepsy.
Sarah completed her bachelor’s in nursing from University of Southern California in 1999. She began her work as a nurse on a telemetry unit, caring for cardiac patients after angiograms and open-heart surgeries. Her favorite position as a nurse was in the emergency room, where she cared for cardio-pulmonary emergencies and took on the roles of charge nurse and paramedic radio nurse.
After completing her master’s degree with honors as a family nurse practitioner from Azusa Pacific University in 2004, Sarah worked at the campus’ University Health Center. In 2007, Sarah married Gabriel and they soon moved to the great state of Texas (later having two boys that she is proud to say are born and raised here).
She began working in the field of sleep medicine shortly after the move, which quickly became her true passion. Sarah was very fortunate to have trained under Dr. Todd J. Swick, a world-renowned specialist in sleep, and credits him with her knowledge and experience. From her time working with cardiac patients early on as a nurse, and her knowledge of the long-term cardiac effects of untreated sleep apnea, she works very closely with her patients to verify sleep apnea treatment is effective.
What sets Sarah apart from traditional specialists, is that she recognizes all aspects of her patients’ lives (schedule, family situation, stress, co-morbid conditions, etc.), affect their sleep and makes it her goal to treat each patient with customized care to improve sleep and manage headaches.
