Assistant professor of physician assistant studies
I have 9 years of experience working in pediatrics and urgent care/occupational medicine
PA students will be taught physical exam skills in a traditional head to toe fashion at the beginning of the didactic year. As we progress through the first 12 months of study, students will refine and master their physical exam and medical history taking skills during each body system module. Prior to the clinical year, students will be trained to perform specific medical skills such as suturing, casting/splinting, IV placement, lumbar puncture, etc.
In my spare time I love spending time with my husband and children. We love spending time out in the yard, kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, and trips to the zoo/children’s museum. I also like to cook/bake and read.
