Jillian was inspired to become a physician assistant after gymnastics resulted in her having two ACL reconstructions in high school. She is very grateful for the care she received and decided to positively impact others lives in a similar way. Jillian graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005 and then earned a Masters in Medical Science and Physician Assistant Studies from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona in 2011. Jillian believes that healthcare is a partnership between you and your provider. No one single approach is right for everyone, and so she works closely with patients to develop quality treatment plans that are tailor-made to the individual and their lifestyle. She prides herself on educating patients and empowering them to take active roles in their health.
