Beth earned a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2015 from USC Upstate, where she graduated cum laude. As an undergraduate, she tutored and was involved in the Honors Society Club.

Since graduating, she has worked as a director at Chick-fil-A, an EMT, and an emergency and trauma services technician.

“I want to be an active part of healing and imprinting on my patients’ lives,” she says about becoming a physician assistant.

Beth has volunteered at a soup kitchen, on food and clothing drives, and with mobile meals. She has also served on medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic.

“I believe it’s important to give back to the community and help our fellow members of society,” she says. “I chose PC’s PA Program mostly based on the school’s motto, Dum Vivimus Servimus.

“This motto embodies what I believe in, and what I will carry with me throughout the course of my career.”
