I started writing about the PA profession in Canada shortly after graduating from PA school in Canada.

It started with the intent to answer some common questions I was getting from acquaintances and emails on a freely hosted wordpress site, but quickly grew into a platform that combines my passion for PA advocacy with interests in writing, mentorship and building community.

Blog posts cover answers to how to become a PA in Canada, resources for PA school as well as how to build your career and practice as a Canadian PA!
