Becky Peebles grew up in El Paso, Texas and found her love for athletics while competing in dance, power tumbling and cheer. Through a sports injury in grade school, she was introduced to the field of Sports Medicine which immediately became her dream career. While obtaining a biology degree at Texas Tech University, Becky marched with the Goin’ Band from Raiderland and played rugby. Wanting to practice patient care with a wholistic approach and facilitate the body to heal itself, Becky then pursued a degree in Osteopathic Medicine from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. During medical school, she found a passion for endurance sports and has since finished numerous marathons and triathlons, including a full-distance Ironman triathlon. After medical school, Becky commissioned into active duty in the United States Air Force. She completed Family Medicine Residency at Travis Air Force Base (AFB) and Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS). She became faculty for the Offutt AFB Family Medicine Residency and served as Assistant Professor for USUHS and Adjunct Assistant Professor for the University of Nebraska Medical Center during her time there. Becky had the honor of serving her country for a total of 8 years and was honorably discharged in 2021 after she prayerfully decided it was time to put down roots near family. Becky is committed to being a lifelong learner and sharing that knowledge with others through teaching and presenting scholarly work at professional medical meetings. She has also published work in premier peer-reviewed Family and Sports Medicine journals and a textbook. Throughout her medical career, Becky has worked with athletes of all levels and covered a variety of mass participation events as well as youth, high school, collegiate and international sporting competitions. Professionally, Becky has interest in run form analysis and retraining, sports nutrition, osteopathic treatments, non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, ultrasound-guided procedures, concussions, prolotherapy, and platelet rich plasma injections. Becky is committed to living an active, healthy lifestyle and enjoys running, cycling, hiking, camping, spending time with her family and following Jesus.
