My favorite thing about being in the dual PA/MPH Master’s program is that I get to see healthcare from almost every angle, both “behind the scenes” from a public health perspective, and in the thick of the action as a PA student. It’s important to me to understand patients’ diseases and how to treat them and also WHY they are sick. What is it about a persons environment or unique identifiers that contributes to their health outcomes? I have always been interested in health disparities and have always known I wanted to be a clinician. My unique dual degree allows me to explore both! (@coutureinclinic) #PAlife #PAstudent #paschool

Before I started PA school, I worked as a model for many different brands and agencies from childhood through my bachelors degree. This left me with a passion for fashion which I hoped to continue to cultivate throughout my medical career. Working with Medelita, a company founded by a fellow female PA-C, has allowed me to do just that by marrying the practicality necessary for hospital-wear with the sleek lines and elegant styles of fashion-forward apparel. And because they’re all designed by a PA with 10 years of clinical experience, I feel more confident knowing that my scrubs and lab coats will stand up in even the most high-pressure situations.

I am often asked why I chose the PA profession over all of the other awesome options in the healthcare field. Because I have so many interests in medicine, I wanted a career that would allow me to move between specialities freely without any additional training. PAs are often considered “jacks of all trades” which is exactly what I hope to be when it comes to practicing medicine! (@coutureinclinic) #Medelita #MedelitaHIPTakeover #PAstudent #Scrubslife
