- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
My name is Kendra Hughes and I currently live in Covington, Kentucky but I am originally from Pendleton County. I attended the University of Kentucky earning my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 2018. I recently graduated from the University of Toledo Physician Assistant Program in December 2020. In my free time I like spending time with friends and family, as well as training my new puppy, Gus! I have had a strong interest in surgery since being diagnosed with hemihypertrophy at the age of 12. Throughout my clinical year I completed a variety of rotations and fell in love with the surgical aspect of these experiences. My personal understanding as a patient along with my hands on education in surgery inspired me to apply for the surgical PA residency through UK. I am thrilled that this experience is offered at St. Elizabeth in Northern Kentucky, allowing me to give back to my community. I am most excited about gaining knowledge and experience in diverse elements of surgery, especially those I wasn’t able to see during graduate school, all while becoming a competent and confident PA! I am very grateful for this opportunity.
