My road in life has been direct.
I’ve always really enjoyed biology. After volunteering in the emergency room while in high school, I realized that I wanted to pursue medicine.
My next step was determining what role in medicine I wanted to pursue; there are so many avenues to choose from when pursuing a career in the medical field.
While at Point Loma Nazarene University, I discovered the role of a physician assistant (PA).
Since I majored in biology, I had fulfilled all of the prerequisites needed to apply to a PA graduate program.
At the time, I only qualified for programs that were out of state, so I chose to live in Miami, Florida and attend Barry University.
The end of school was challenging. While taking my certification exam, I remember thinking I wasn’t ready to be a full-fledged provider.
I am now working as a physician assistant in Hoag Hospital's Emergency Department.
Keep following my journey
