My name is Dr. Sonja Calliste, I am the mother of two children, Alfred and Ciara, and the grandmother of three beautiful grandchildren, Bryson, Savannah, and Madeline. I was born and raised in Wichita Falls, Texas. I became an LVN and graduated from Vernon College in 1990. I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2007 from Midwestern State University. I received my Masters of Science in Nursing from Midwestern State University, becoming an Advanced Certified Nurse Practitioner in 2010. In 2014, I attended the University of Arlington (UTA) and earned my post master's certification and became a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. With lots of encouragement from my friends, I stepped out on faith, and in 2017, I obtained my Doctorate Degree from the University of Chamberlain.

The last twelve years I have had the pleasure of working as an adjunct faculty in the undergraduate and graduate nursing department at Midwestern State University. My hobbies include shopping, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends.
