Biography

Jessica Anderson is an alumni of both Chatham’s undergraduate studies and Master of Physician Assistant studies. In 2008, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus in biology and a minor in psychology. She graduated from Chatham’s PA program in 2010. From 2010 to 2015, she worked full-time in family practice. During that time, she also worked as an adjunct professor for Chatham’s physician assistant physical diagnosis course. In 2015, she accepted a faculty position within the Physician Assistant Program, where she works as a member of the clinical team to guide aspects surrounding clinical curricula and PA student clinical rotations. Personally, Jessica enjoys her time outside of Chatham reading classic lit and best-selling thriller novels, running, and especially building a beautiful life with her husband and their three children.
