Why do you want to be a PA? 

I want to be an advocate for patients through providing them with great medical care and the knowledge to improve their own health. Patients deserve to be more integrated in the decision-making process regarding their own health. Once I become a PA, I aim to be part of a healthcare team that will strive to provide exceptional patient care. 

Why did you choose Presbyterian College PA Program? 

During my interview with a few of the professors in the PC PA program, I felt like they truly were interested in me and who I am. It was professional but also friendly. While this is a newer program, I felt like it had a lot to offer. I thank the Lord to this day that I am able to attend such a great PA program!
