Experienced Professional Looking to Shadow PA or Volunteer

Recommended Posts

Hi! I thought I'd give this a shot.

 

I'll be applying for Physician Assistant programs this year, and I'm looking to volunteer or shadow a PA in the New York City area. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's in Technology from NYU. I've worked in the Tech/Marketing/Communications field for about 10 years and have decided that the PA field is more aligned with my personal values. That's the field I can see myself in for the rest of my life. My undergrad GPA was very good, my Master's GPA was even better (a 3.8).

 

I have an extensive background in the arts and have specialized in several forms of dance and bodywork, when I was younger. I acquired many applicable skills, having nursed physicial injuries and undergone strength conditioning. However, I am open to all types of HCE as it is still too early for me to know what specialties will suit me best.

 
I've worked at Tech Start-Ups and Global Brands as a Senior Marketing Manager/Project Manager.  I'm a responsible, accomplished, skilled professional with several references. I can also provide a character reference from a friend who is both a Professor and Psychiatrist.
 
Please send me a private message if you would like to chat. Thanks in advance.
