About Kaila A. Smith, APRN, FNP-C

  • In her free time, Kaila Smith enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs. They love fishing, hunting, hiking, and most outdoor activities. She and her husband are “huge sports fans,” and enjoy attending and watching various sporting events throughout the year. Her favorite Central Texas spot is in her hometown area of Smithville, with its tall oak trees, friendly people, and the peace and quiet of a small town.

Since childhood, I have been fascinated with health and the human body, and becoming a Nurse Practitioner in the medical field allowed me to have a more involved and personal relationship with patients. I love caring for women of all ages and stages in life. My main focus is to listen carefully to patients’ concerns and needs, so I can address their issues fully and efficiently. Educating my patients is important, and giving compassionate care, while providing evidence-based medical care, is always my goal.
