By Jessica Levy –
I have always been interested in medicine and science, but GIRL introduced me to both other like-minded young girls and also to accomplished women in STEM fields who encouraged us to pursue our goals and aim high. I graduated from Virginia Tech in August of 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development. In November, I began my post-undergraduate career at an oral surgery practice in Fairfax. After getting the necessary clinical hours at my current workplace, I desire to attend physician assistant school and continue my career in healthcare.
