Meredith is a 2021 graduate of Le Moyne College’s Direct Entry Physician Assistant Program. After completing her education, she fell in love with the Ithaca area, and joined CMA in February 2022. She grew up near Watertown, where she spent much of her time as a competitive Irish Step Dancer and runner on the track and cross-country teams at her high school. During this time, she developed an interest in healthcare, particularly sports medicine, after sustaining a few sports-related injuries. She also worked as a medical assistant in an orthopedic office for many of her patient care hour requirements. At Le Moyne, during her undergraduate years, Meredith was captain of the women’s varsity club crew team. She also embarked on a medical service trip to poverty-stricken communities surrounding the city of Delhi, India in 2018. During her didactic and clinical years of PA school, she served as head of the student mentor program and was a program liaison to undergraduates interested in pursuing a career in medicine. In her free time, Meredith enjoys hiking, skiing, reading, and spending time with her family and dog.
