Meet the E-Board
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!
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.

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.
