What IS a PA?

Happy Thursday friends!  This week is a special week because all across the country people are celebrating PA Week!  I couldn’t be prouder of my chosen profession and can’t wait to be able to officially celebrate PA Week next year as a practicing Physician Assistant.

I would love the opportunity to answer any of YOUR questions as well!  I hope that this post was helpful :)

  A little known fact about me that you guys might not know is that I am originally from Wisconsin. Wisconsin is the land of cheese curds, frigid winters, Summerfest, Wisconsin Dells, beer, and of course the Greenbay Packers. I was born a Packers fan and raised a Packers fan. This is probably largely due […] more
