B.A. Health Sciences
  • Health Sciences

Class of: 2018

My time at Carroll provided me with the academic skills and knowledge base necessary to pursue a career in medicine. Carroll’s rigorous Health Sciences program provided me both with a scientific perspective of medicine and a deeper understanding of population and community health as a whole. Because of this, I know that medicine is not just clinical, but should be rooted in wholistic care for patients and populations.

I graduated from the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, MT in 2020. I currently work as an orthopedic physician assistant at Helena Orthopaedic Clinic Prompt Care, where I see acute and chronic orthopedic injuries, perform laceration repairs, and first assist in all orthopedic surgeries on an as needed basis. My favorite part of orthopedics is getting to care for all patients of all ages, from sports medicine to arthritis, and each day practicing truly hands-on medicine.

With my mentality rooted in the foundation I gained at Carroll, I will strive to manage patients with compassion and an integrated wholistic approach to healthcare throughout my medical career.
