Primary Location: Wadsworth Medical Clinic
Rebecca is a native Floridian, graduating summa cum laude from the University of Florida with a background in health science and Spanish. She completed her training as a physician assistant (PA) at Eastern Virginia Medical School from where she graduated with honors and was given the Eugene A. Stead Award, presented to one graduate who exhibited overall excellence in both clinical and didactic settings.
Before PA school, she worked in a psycho-oncology research lab studying the biopsychosocial interactions of gynecologic cancers. It was here that she became passionate about the mind-body connection and how physical health heavily influences mental well-being and vice versa. She practices medicine with this holistic philosophy of care. Rebecca has long been interested in gastrointestinal disorders for their vast interaction with every other body system and power to influence quality of life. Her training in this realm took place in the general surgery setting, emergency department, oncology unit at Johns Hopkins University, inpatient and outpatient internal medicine, and (her favorite) Gastrointestinal Specialists, Inc. as a PA student. She is excited to work with such a wonderful group of practitioners.
In her free time, Rebecca enjoys outdoor activities and playing board/card games with her wonderful husband. She also delights in her church and missions involvement and is long-time adult and pediatric hospice volunteer.
