Carly worked toward her Bachelor of Arts in Biology at the University of Texas from 1999-2003. During that time, she was employed as a part time nanny and volunteered at Children’s Hospital of Austin. She attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston from 2003-2007, where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Lastly, she completed the final stage of training at UT Southwestern in Dallas. Children's Medical Center is the fifth largest pediatric health care provider in the nation. As the only academic health care facility in North Texas dedicated exclusively to the comprehensive care of children from birth to age 18, she was exposed to a wide range of pediatric illness.

Carly lives in Bee Cave with her husband, Sam and two daughters, Charlotte and Olivia. They enjoy spending most of their free time outdoors – walking or biking, swimming and boating and just enjoying time with her friends and extended families.

Care Philosophy

"I enjoy educating parents about typical childhood development as well as explaining more complex disease processes. I love that we generally see good outcomes and am always amazed at the resilience of sick children. I believe that a thorough history will lead me to the correct answer in most cases, so I will spend most of our visit listening. I know that all medications come with cost, side effects and often a struggle between parent and child, and therefore I try to limit unnecessary treatments. I believe very strongly in the safety and efficacy of routine childhood immunizations. I understand that there is a lot of misinformation from TV, news articles, internet and even well-meaning friends and family. I am happy to spend time discussing this topic and pointing you toward some helpful educational resources."

Jennifer L. Acosta, MPAS, PA-C

Jennifer was born and raised in South Texas. She graduated with her bachelor’s in Health Education from Texas A&M University in College Station…WHOOP! She then graduated with her Master’s degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Jenny has been happily married to Eddie since 2012 and they’ve recently relocated from Laredo, TX. She is an avid runner, yogi bear, dancer, and friends claim she is a “chef” at heart. She enjoys spending time with family, friends and her adorable Cockapoo Tungsten.

Care Philosophy:

Jennifer takes care of all ages, although she has a special place in her heart for kids! She enjoys family medicine because it gives her the opportunity to establish bonds with families as a whole unit and truly get to know her patients on a different level to best help them. Coming from a medically underserved community, Jenny understands how essential access to healthcare and establishing rapport with your healthcare providers are. Her special interests include pediatrics, sports medicine, women’s health, and chronic illnesses. She believes preventive medicine is the foundation of a long, healthy life and patients are their own advocates in achieving this goal. She thrives on enabling patients with the tools they need to embark on this journey.
