Teaching & Education
- MS, Physician Assistant Studies, Philadelphia University, 2008
- BS, Molecular Biology, Grove City College, 2006
Currently teach in Problem Based Learning, Medical Practice, Pediatrics, Healthcare Ethics and Surgery.
My clinical experience started in Philadelphia, moved to Texas, and now is in South Carolina, where I still currently practice as a hospitalist PA and in a suboxone clinic.
I have been on faculty with NGU since 2017.
I work alongside a wonderful hospitalist team at St. Francis and also with a caring group of APPs at Cypress Center Clinic.
Since graduation, I have practiced inpatient medicine, whether it be with a hospitalist team or surgical team. Since graduation, I also have had 4 children, which made the balance of late nights in the hospital and family life a bit strained. During my time during full-time clinical practice, I was able to precept pre-PA and nurse practitioner students. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to teach, but also see the students’ critical thinking evolve during their rotations. After over 10 years in full-time clinical practice, I joined NGU full time, but still work clinically inpatient and in a suboxone clinic. In other areas of life, I am a professional mom-van driver and like to run and cycle.
Favorite course to teach: Pediatrics
