Michelle graduated in 1996 with a BS in Biology and a minor in Psychology. A native of South Jersey, she played tennis for 3 years at Ursinus and worked part time in the Alumni office, Student Activities office and was a TA in Microbiology. She moved out to Southern California to attend Physician Assistant school right after graduation and ended up marrying a classmate. She has practiced in a variety of settings in Family Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery, Medical Weight Loss and Aesthetics. Currently she works full time for AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals in their US Medical Affairs Diabetes Division as a Medical Science Liaison covering the Greater Los Angeles area. She also works per diem as a PA-C in cosmetic lasers and is an Independent Consultant for Rodan+Fields skincare.
Even though most of her family still lives in the Tri-State area, she couldn’t get her hubby to relocate to the Northeast so they settled in Orange County with their 2 young daughters and 2 box turtles. She started a Facebook page for UC alumni in California and loves to connect other SoCal alumni. She invites you to reach out to her if you’re ever on the “left coast”!
