I was practicing as a PA in Family Medicine when I was asked to serve as a preceptor for a PA student. I found I really enjoyed teaching during that time. It seemed God was calling me out of clinical practice in order to use my skill set in a different way. I am humbled that I get to help develop well-informed and compassionate PAs.
Favorite Course to Teach: Clinical Methods and Procedures because it is comprised of many hands-on skills, requiring active engagement rather than a traditional lecture format.
