Katie Brandon, Nurse Practitioner

Katie Brandon is an experienced nurse practitioner with triple certification in Family Practice, Psychiatry/Mental Health, and Obesity Medicine. After earning a Bachelor of Business Administration at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, Katie went on to attend the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston where she completed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She then pursued a Master and Post-Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Texas in Arlington. Katie's healthcare experience as a registered nurse includes four years in the cardiovascular intensive care unit and two years in the emergency department at a large hospital in Fort Worth, TX.

As a nurse practitioner, Katie has six years experience treating primary psychiatric illness, addiction, dual-diagnosis, and obesity at both the inpatient and outpatient levels. She is board certified in both Family Practice and Mental Health/Psychiatry through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. She is also certified by the Obesity Medicine Association. Katie is distinguished as a Graduate Nursing Clinical Education Specialist for nurse practitioner students. She is passionate about working with under-treated, stigmatized, and misunderstood chronic health conditions. Katie is dedicated to pursuing a holistic approach to mental health and weight loss with a focus on commitment and sustainability. She understands weight management can be a highly sensitive, emotional topic for some patients. She brings compassion and authenticity to the field of obesity medicine and mental health.

Katie Brandon founded Ignite in November 2021 to offer a unique, integrated treatment approach for both mental health and obesity with a focus on conservative prescribing. Her sister's distressing experience in the traditional healthcare system seeking help for weight loss inspired her to offer a softer, more holistic approach to obesity medicine. 

Katie is a mother to three young children and wife to a medical student. She is a certified Les Mills Bodypump instructor and enjoys teaching classes at a local gym.

Katie treats patients 6 years and older. She provides the option for in-person appointments in Lubbock, TX on Fridays. She is licensed to practice in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico and provides telemedicine across all three states.

I love Katie Brandon and everything she has done for me! She has extensive knowledge and the gift to formulate the perfect individual plan for each person! I’m down a pants size in one month and feel empowered and confident!

Katie has been a God-send to our family. Our 14 yr old daughter has high functioning autism and was reaching all-time lows. We had seen several other practitioners including a pediatric neurologist and no one had been able to connect with our daughter and gain her trust. She didn’t want to go to anymore doctors claiming that no one had helped her and she just couldn’t do it anymore. These are the amazing things about Katie… 1. She is on zoom…this was such a better experience for both my daughter and I. It was amazing to not have to drive, sit in another office, and be seen by someone who never really cared to know us. Zoom was so convenient and we felt more relaxed in our home. 2. Katie is cash pay and the great part about this is that the child didn’t have to be present like in the Dr. Office. This allowed me to talk openly with her about what was going on without my daughter having to be embarrassed or sit through hearing everything again. Being able to have separate appointments allows my daughter and I to both be heard. 3. Katie has been amazingly available. When I have needed prescription refills or needed to touch base she has been extremely responsive and willing to help in timely manner. No more emailing the dr’s nurse🙌🏻🙌🏻. 4. I finally feel like I have someone in my corner who is helping me figure out how to help my daughter. She genuinely cares and I can’t put into words the amount of stress that has taken off of my shoulders. She has thought outside of the box in regards to her medication and we are finally feeling hopefully for the first time in a long time. Can’t recommend her enough!! 10/10

A boutique medical practice that helped me so much. Excellent care and expertise. Especially recommend to women going through menopause and deal with weight gain and hormonal mood swings and anxiety. Lubbock is so lucky to have this practice.

I began this journey with Katie about 2 months ago and I have to say she is simply the best. I’m getting results, feeling better, and learning new things every time we meet. I have and would recommend her.

I saw a post on FB in a nurses of AZ group, I was at a point in my life I was ready to do something. I called and got to talk with Katie upon calling! I’ve been working with her since July and I don’t regret one minute of it. Katie has been encouraging, supportive, and has finally given me the tools I need to be successful in my weight loss journey! My mindset has changed, my motivation has increased, my body is changing and Katie has been a helpful hand behind it all!! I have recommended her to all of my friends and will continue to do so!
