After graduating from high school near Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Schlichtemeier moved to Texas to attend Baylor University, where she graduated Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience. After college, Dr. Schlichtemeier moved to Houston where she completed medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. It was during this time that she fell in love with caring for children and went on to complete her pediatrics residency also at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

She is board certified in pediatrics and recently worked for Kelsey Seybold in the Kingwood/Humble area before coming to Blue Fish.

She also recently completed a graduate certification from Tufts University, providing her more knowledge and tools to assist her patients and families in choosing a healthy diet and benefiting from good nutritional decisions.
Dr. Schlichtemeier loves to work with and educate families in order to provide the best care possible for her patients. She believes that teamwork between patients, families, and medical providers is essential to achieve the best results.
