PA Student
Class of 2021

Hometown: Woodruff, S.C.


Hunter earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from The Citadel in 2018. Her honors at graduation included the American Legion Award and Sergeant Major Coin.

As an undergraduate, Hunter was involved in GRACE, a women’s Bible Study; the American Chemical Society; and the Pre-Health Society. She was also the Regimental Supply Officer, Regimental Supply Sergeant and a Chemistry Supplemental Instructor.

During her undergraduate career, Hunter worked with children in need at an elementary school in Charleston. She’s been an active church member and volunteer at Woodruff First Baptist Church throughout her life.

After graduating from The Citadel, Hunter began work as a document reviewer at Pharmaceutical Associates, a market leader in unit dose liquid generic pharmaceuticals. While there, she was promoted to a document reviewer and lab tech. In this role, she aided in review and gained experience in the lab performing wet chemistry analysis.

Hunter learned about PC from her husband, who attended PC as an undergraduate, and she fell in love with the campus and town.

If the small-school atmosphere and welcome faculty weren’t enough, “the fact that I would be a part of the inaugural class really put the icing on the cake,” Hunter said.

She believes her love for others, passion, leadership skills, and motivation and dedication to human health will allow her to have a positive impact on patients’ health.

Hunter says she’s blessed to have her parents and all four grandparents still living and in good health and loves to share their family adventures.

Hunter married her high school sweetheart, Ethan Casey, on April 6, 2019. The Caseys have two German Shepherd puppies, who keep them busy. They will be embarking on the PA School journey together.
