Jessica Jones knew as a teenager that she wanted to enter health care, and as a Physician Assistant in Seneca, S.C., she feels the rewards have been worth the effort.

One of Jones’ biology teachers in high school inspired her to become a medical professional, suggesting Physician Assistant as a career option. 

Jones came to Anderson University as a volleyball recruit and played as a middle blocker on the Trojans Women’s Volleyball Team. While at AU, she also was involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the Anderson Science Association. Looking back, she appreciates the care and guidance of her professors. 

“I feel like having all of my professors on my side and wanting to see me succeed was helpful. I got to go through my four years having my professors collaborate with me on my next steps as far as grad school, meeting with them and being on the same page as far as my end goal,” Jones said.

She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the Anderson University College of Arts and Sciences

“I feel like God got me to the place I am today,” she said. “Faith definitely has a huge part in my journey.” 

Jones feels that helping her patients live healthier lives is rewarding in many ways, getting to know each as individuals and also getting to know their families.

Her advice to anyone wishing to follow in her footsteps is to study hard and trust God for direction as they work towards their goals.
