Lauren Ashley Chappell was born and raised in Paris, TX by her parents Robby and Staci Russell. She is happy to be home in Paris and is excited to have the opportunity to begin her medical career with the outstanding doctors at Texoma Dermatology who have long served our community. Ashley attended Paris ISD schools and graduated from Paris High School with top honors, earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and a minor in Business from Texas A & M University in College Station, and received her Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
Ashley has always had a love for medicine and helping others. Her experience working at Azalea Orthopedic Clinic in Tyler and shadowing her uncle, Dr. Michael Russell, confirmed her passion for medicine and grew her interest in becoming a Physician Assistant. Through Dr. Russell’s PA, she gained a great respect and appreciation for the value a Physician Assistant can bring to the doctor and the patient.
After years of being away from home while in school, Ashley moved back to her hometown with her husband Grant Chappell, also a hometown boy and graduate of Paris High and Texas A&M. With deep roots planted in Paris, TX, they are eager to be giving back to the Paris Community where their families have resided for many generations.
Ashley is passionate about caring for others in the community and following God’s will for her life. She is excited to see what God has planned for her, her family, and her career in Dermatology. She looks forward to Texoma Dermatology becoming a part of US Dermatology Partners and to the many resources that will enhance the benefits of advanced skin care to our Paris patients.
