Bowker, PA-C

PA school: Dominican University of California

Undergraduate: Western State College of Colorado

Hometown: Santa Barbara, CA and Crested Butte, CO

Hobbies and Interests: Snowboarding, mtn biking, surfing, whitewater rafting (former guide), hiking, camping, open to most outdoor activities and adventures. Grew up playing soccer and I enjoy sand volleyball. I like trying new restaurants/food and will take most excuses to pet random dogs, especially the ones with square heads and short tails.

Why Fresno: High patient volume, varied pathologies, endless procedural opportunities, level 1 trauma center, excellent reputation, good off-service rotations, association with EMS and wilderness medicine entities. Fresno also stuck out because my family will be within a 2-4 hour drive, as will the ocean, mountains, and amazing national parks. Plus everyone I met during the interview day was so welcoming and nice.
