As we navigate these challenging times, we’re proud to announce that our PCCSF team is continuing to grow. It is our mission to deliver quality care to our patients, and provide their families the highest support and we’re able to do so thanks to the expertise, knowledge and dedication of our medical staff.
PCCSF is delighted to welcome Jesse Scanlon, PA-C. Please read on to get to know her!
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where my interest in medicine and helping others was peaked when I worked with students with special needs at my high school. Additionally, I spent summers working at day camps/nannying and realized how much I loved working with children.
I received a degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, where I also continued to volunteer with individuals with special needs and children in the foster care system. Realizing that I wanted to work more directly with people, I earned my EMT license and worked at an ABA facility for children with Autism while applying to PA school. I attended Nova Southeastern University’s Physician Assistant program where my passion for working with pediatrics continued to grow as I rotated in general pediatrics, pediatric hematology/oncology, gastroenterology, and critical care. While I rotated with the critical care team at Joe DiMaggio, I enjoyed the opportunity to work with a wide range of patients and build a rapport with our longer-term patients and families.
Outside of medicine, my interests include snorkeling, kayaking, weightlifting, volunteering, traveling, history, trying new restaurants, and sappy rom-coms.
