Meet the E-Board
Hi everyone my name is Anna Bisonet. I am from Jenison, MI, about 10 minutes from the GVSU campus. I am a junior studying Allied Health Science with a pre-PA emphasis. I am also in the honors college and help run the welcome week activities to prepare freshmen for their experience at college. I have been a part of the GVSU Pre-PA club since my freshman year. To gain patient care experience I worked at a nursing home as a nursing assistant for about a year. Currently, I work as a nurse technician at Butterworth Hospital on the cardiac floor. I am a member of Mu Epsilon Delta, the healthcare fraternity here on campus. To gain volunteer experience I volunteer regularly at YWCA. Feel free to reach out anytime with any questions or concerns. I can’t wait to meet everyone and for another great year!
Hello! My name is Hope Hopkins and I will be a senior this year at GVSU. This will be my second year as a Laker and as a member of the Pre-PA club. I am so excited to be on the Eboard this year as the resource coordinator! I am from the beautiful town of Petoskey in Northern Michigan. My major is Allied Health Sciences with a general emphasis, and minoring in Biology. I aspire to work as a Physician Assistant in dermatology and am planning to gain patient care experience at a dermatology practice in my hometown. I am also a member of Women in Medicine and Science Club. In my free time, I am a ski instructor and love spending time outdoors. Being a member of this Pre-PA club has been very helpful navigating all the ins and outs that getting ready to apply for PA school requires. Please contact me with any questions or suggestions you may have!

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.
Hi everyone! I am a senior studying biomedical sciences, and am also a member of the honors college. For my patient care experience, I work as a PCA at Trinity Health Grand Rapids in oncology and med-surg, and I absolutely love my unit. I currently volunteer as a counselor on the crisis text line, which has been such a rewarding experience. I am from a small town in Michigan, Delton, and besides my education, I enjoy lifting, hiking, and baking. Previously, I was VP Media for GVSU CHAARG and pre-PA club’s secretary. I’m so excited to serve as your president this year! Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any reason, and I look forward to meeting you.
