I am particularly interested in an emergency/family medicine track and would love the opportunity to interact with your staff and patients. I have over ten years of experience as a Flight Medic and EMT- Intermediate in emergency medicine and while I am a newly graduated PA, I spent the majority of my clinical year working in an Urgent and Family Care in Juneau, Alaska. I am eager to be on the forefront of biomedical sciences in the emergency trauma, as well as in the clinical setting interactively working to be involved in developing treatments and advancing survivorship. At present, I completed my Physician Assistant Masters Degree Program at Heritage University in May 2018. I am NCCPA certified and currently have my Texas Medical License pending. I look forward to continuing my education in the pursuit of a career as a Physician Assistant and would love to learn from one of the largest health systems in Texas. I am intrigued and motivated me to find more ways to be involved in the process of helping save lives.
