As a Board-Certified Physician Assistant to Dr. Dean Cummings since 2016, I specialize in Sports Medicine and Orthopedics/Orthopedic surgery of the Shoulder, Elbow, Knee and currently a serve as a team member of the Bone Health Clinic as a Specialist. I received a Bachelors of Science in Biology and pre-Physician Assistant studies from Grand Canyon University in Arizona and continued on to obtain a Masters degree in Physician Assistant Studies at MCPHS University in Boston, Massachusetts. My clinical training covered all specialties of health sciences including internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, family practice, psychiatry, women’s health, general surgery, and Orthopedics/orthopedic surgery where I worked alongside Dr. Duhon within TOCA.
As a native to Arizona I returned after school to work permanently alongside Dr. Cummings specializing in sports medicine and orthopedic/reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, elbow and knee; as well as a Bone health specialist for treatment and prevention of Osteopenia, Osteoporosis, and osteoporotic related fractures.
I enjoy spending time with my TOCA team daily where they challenge me and as I do them. My past times are spent with physical and outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, hunting, as well as a new obsession with my puppy.
