Her father was the first endocrinologist at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston where he served as head of the department for 25 years, Sadler’s mother was an exceptionally busy family doctor in Houston who also served as clinical faculty for Baylor College of Medicine. Growing up in a two physician household inspired interesting dinner-time discussions which propelled several siblings towards medicine.

Sadler is a clinical assistant professor for the Texas A&M College of Medicine.

Sadler commonly quotes Proverbs 17:22: A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Our love for the profession can be contagious to both patients and staff. It is important for us to enjoy what we do and whom we serve. We should bring hope and happiness to work every day.
