I am a December 2012 graduate of the Biology program at Misericordia University. I am now studying to be a Physical Therapist in Misericordia University’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program. My Misericordia Biology education and background has been instrumental in my transition to graduate level education. I was able to handle the workload and studying with confidence and minimal stress. I felt that I was thoroughly prepared. Majoring in Biology at Misericordia has given me the tools and skills that I will use in higher education and further on in life.

Currently completing my last year of a Family Medicine Residency at Kent Hospital, Rhode Island and will be an attending physician in an outpatient practice July 2014.

I would never change my undergraduate training and continue to take pride in being a Misericordia Alumni!
I am a 2008 graduate of Misericordia University’s Biology program. During my time at Misericordia, I was encouraged to achieve in both my academics and extracurricular activities. My professors and advisers taught me how to manage challenging work while still remaining involved in social activities such as residence life and peer tutoring in order to ensure I received a well-rounded educational experience.
Because of the great support I received at Misericordia, I graduated with my Doctorate in Optometry from The Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in May 2012. I am now an Associate Optometrist for Visionworks of America, Inc. and love what I do for a living. The education and support I received at Misericordia made it happen!

Class of 2009
I am a 2009 Misericordia graduate with a bachelor’s in Biology with minors in Chemistry and English. In 2012, I completed my master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies at King’s College. I currently reside in Shavertown with my husband and started working as a physician assistant in September 2012 at Dallas Family Practice, Dallas, PA. My Misericordia education was definitely a pivotal puzzle piece to be where I am today. The small class sizes compared to bigger universities were definitely a benefit when dealing with the rigorous biology curriculum. My relationships with the professors also helped to push and challenge me throughout my education and influenced me in my accomplishments thus far.
