Success In A Snapshot

The strong and rigorous academics that LVC provided prepared me for the academic demand of Physician Assistant school. At LVC, I had the opportunity to play women’s basketball, be an RA (residential assistant), and be a member/officer of various clubs, which helped me to establish time management skills and a strong work ethic, which carried into physician assistant school and my career.

The teachers all provided insightful feedback on projects, exams, and papers; this guidance, coupled with open office hours and two-way communication that made me feel heard and understood in both academic and personal aspects of my life has helped mold me into a stronger, more independent person today.
