Meet the E-Board
Meet the E-Board
I am a senior majoring in Clinical Exercise Science. I have been a member of the Pre-PA Club since my freshman year and I am honored to now serve as the club's president. Last year, I acted as treasurer and was grateful to meet a number of our members. Over the last year, I have worked as a medical scribe for Spectrum and will continue that experience by transitioning to the role of a specialty scribe at Michigan Pain Clinic. Additionally, I have worked as a CNA at a long-term care facility prior to becoming a scribe. Beyond work and school, I participate as a research assistant for two studies at Grand Valley and enjoy playing intramural sports on campus. I look forward to my further involvement within the club and hope to be a beneficial resource to all of you on your journeys towards becoming a PA.
I am a senior majoring in Clinical Exercise Sciences. I've enjoyed being a member in the club since my freshman year. Last year I served on the E-Board as the communications chair, and this year I look forward to my involvement as your vice president. I worked as a CNA at the Laurels of Hudsonville my freshman year, and have since worked on the
Med-Surg/Peds floor in Metro Health Hospital as a Patient Care Technician. Additionally, I enjoy participation in campus ministries and intramural sports on campus, or when I'm off campus I enjoy both volunteering and fishing with Trout Unlimited. I hope to serve as a helpful resource to members and am excited to grow professionally alongside all of you.
I am a junior studying Allied Health Sciences and Biology. I’ve been a member of the Pre-PA Club since my freshman year and am very excited to serve as the treasurer this year! I work as a Nursing Assistant at Munson Medical Center and am starting this year as a volunteer medical assistant at the Oasis of Hope Medical Center in downtown Grand Rapids. Outside of this club I lead a Life Group through Campus Ministry and am a part of the Rotaract Club. In my free time I enjoy volunteering, hiking, running, and doing anything outdoors! I am looking forward to seeing what this year will bring and will support you all to the best of my ability as we all continue this journey to becoming PAs!
I am a junior studying Allied Health Sciences with an emphasis on pre-PA. I am very excited to be on the e-board this year as the club secretary as I have been involved in the club since my freshman year. I have volunteered in the emergency room at McLaren Macomb Hospital, as well as many fire stations. I have my EMT and currently work as a CNA at Samaritas Senior Living in Grand Rapids. I have previous experience working at McLaren Port Huron as a Nurse Aide on the Med Surg floor. Outside of work and school, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and working out. Running is a good way to escape from the outside world and clear my mind. I am so excited about what this school year will bring for all of us as we learn together as future healthcare workers.

Additionally, I am the President of GVSU’s Plogging club and love to volunteer with them, as well as with the Hunger and Homelessness club.

Hello everyone! I have been with the GVSU Pre-PA club since my freshman year and am now a junior studying Clinical Exercise Science. My hometown is Battle Creek and I have been working as a CNA at an assisted living and a Patient Care Assistant at Mercy Health on the Oncology/Med-Surg floor. I am also involved with the community service organization, Circle K International, as well as the cultural organizations Asian Student Union and the Vietnamese Cultural Association. Outside of school, I enjoy baking and cooking new dishes and playing tennis.
I look forward to meeting and working alongside everyone this year through the GVSU Pre-PA club. It has been a great resource in guiding me through the Pre-PA path and I hope to contribute back and be a resource for all of you as well. Always feel free to ask questions, bring up your ideas, or to chat with me in general.
Molly Paulson PA-C
I earned my first college degree from the University of Wisconsin, Superior in medical technology. After graduating from UWS, I worked as a medical technologist in both hospital and out-patient clinical settings for 22 years.
In 1995, I applied to, and was accepted into WMU’s PA program. I graduated in 1998 with a BS in medicine. Since then I have worked continuously as a PA, first in the ED/urgent care, then in occupational medicine, and, for most of my PA career, in outpatient family practice where I precepted PA students. As a preceptor, I discovered that I really enjoyed teaching others how to do what I love (practice medicine). I went back to school, earned my Master’s degree (Univ. of Nebraska), and started teaching at GVSU in 2011 where I teach Clinical Applications (the “art” of medicine). In addition to teaching and working clinically one day a week at Oasis of Hope, I went back to school a fourth time and completed my doctorate of Health Sciences from A. T. Still University in 2016.
One of the privileges of being the Pre-PA advisor is sharing my love of the PA profession with you. I look forward to getting to know you better during the next couple of semesters and help you achieve your dream of becoming a PA.
