About Heather Harrison, PA-C
Heather is passionate about patient education and has a natural ability to help patients feel at ease. Her interest in healthcare was originally sparked as a young woman, when she went to work with her mother at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Being surrounded by exceptional healthcare providers gave Heather a first-hand look at the impact she could have on patients' lives and was determined to become a healthcare provider herself. Following a Physician Assistant shadowing experience in college, Heather knew pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant was the right choice for her.
Heather earned her Bachelor of Science in neurobiology and physiology at the University of Maryland, College Park and her M.M.S in Physician Assistant Studies at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2018. Throughout her education, she felt compelled to learn more about GI illness and and the root cause of disease. She works diligently with our Gastro Health physicians to ensure patients receive the best care possible.
Heather is a proud member of the Gastro Health team and is an active member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
