Professional Knowledge I Can Share

Need help getting into a PA program? Interested in exploring opportunities in orthopedic and spine surgery? I can help! I am an orthopedic PA that is knowledgeable on how the role of PAs fit into practice and the realities of specializing in orthopedic spine surgery. I have a proven success record helping PA applicants get into programs and am proficient in helping applications stand out, editing application essays, editing resumes, and conducting mock type interviews.

Professional Knowledge I Am Seeking

I would like to get from this community a better sense of what lies ahead of our professions. I would like to explore ways to broaden our reach, and increase our autonomy. Best of all, I would like to create a kind of community that helps each other get better every day in order to ultimately work to our fullest potential.

Josh was a great advisor to speak with. He offered valuable insight regarding the application processes related to both PA school and when seeking job opportunities. He was able to relate of lot of his personal experiences and lessons learned to my questions which provided a great real world idea of what to expect. I would definitely recommend that anyone interested in the PA profession speak with Josh as he has definitely made me feel more prepared and excited to begin my career.
