Vanessa - Physician Assistant Student Ambassador
Hi! My name is Vanessa and I am originially from Coudersport, PA. I attended St. Bonaventure University in New York when I majored in Biology. I love everything about Charleston and the Beach. I enjoy horseback riding, fishing, playing tennis on our awesome roof top tennis courts, traveling to new countries, cooking, and of course eating! I moved to Charleston from Virginia with my husband and our two kids. The people in Charleston are very friendly and the city is very unique. It has charm and character. Charleston reminds me of a mini New Orleans. You can’t go wrong coming to this great city with the bonus of its beautiful beaches!
Attending a PA program at a college that also had a medical school is a tremendous asset. At MUSC we are getting a top notch, very up-to-date interdisciplinary education. I chose MUSC because of its emphasis on research, interdisciplinary studies, and evidence based medicine. The faculty also stood out to me as a fun, hard working group of people that are eager to teach us, but also for us to become their colleagues in the PA profession. I look forward to finishing my degree and working as a PA in women's health.
