Extraordinary, Worthwhile, Breathtaking

What advice would you give to next year's first year class?

Be diligent and don’t get behind in your studies, but also enjoy your life as much as you can!

Having fun with the new friends I have made in the program.

What professor or staff member stands out from your time here, and why?

Dr. Letassy and Dr. Britton both for putting so much effort and care into teaching our program.

What was your most memorable moment from this school year?

The first time I ever got to intubate a patient or help deliver a baby are absolutely tied for first!

What is one thing you'd like to say to your family and/or friends on your graduation day?

I would thank them so much for their support and sticking by my side for this exceptionally stressful and mentally challenging two and a half years. I would especially like to thank my mom and dad for really getting me to this point with all their love and encouragement and being my inspiration for going into medicine.

What are your plans after graduation?

Be an exceptional Gastroenterology Physician Assistant in San Antonio, Texas!
