In Beseman’s own words, “I love being a PA! The ability to help others while challenging your mind is unmatched by anything I've ever accomplished or set out to accomplish in my lifetime. I am happy to be giving back to the same community that "raised" me into the person I am today!” The PA received her Master and Bachelor of Science degrees in Physician Assistant Studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2004 and 2006. Her interests in medical care are many and varied, but she does have an affinity for emergency medicine and tends to gravitate towards family medicine since field allows for provider-patient relationships that make being a PA so rewarding.
