JoNathan has spent most of his life living in Oregon with the brief exception of a couple years spent living in Washington. His interest in the field of medicine was peaked at a very young age as he learned more about his bleeding disorder and the extent that disorders such as those can impact someone’s life. Eventually deciding on pursuing a career path as a PA, he finished his Bachelor of Science in Biology focusing on pre-med in the Spring of 2020 before moving to Bend in order to finish up his prerequisites to start applying to PA programs.
JoNathan’s favorite sport to compete in growing up was Track and Field. He also especially enjoys being active outdoors, with his favorite activity being rock climbing and bouldering. Golfing, hiking, camping, and paddle boarding/inner tubing are a few other activities he enjoys in the nice weather. In the colder months, JoNathan keeps busy with carpentry projects and playing games.
