- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Jana was born in Port Charlotte, Florida but spent her childhood in the rural areas of Russia with her missionary parents before coming back to the United States for high school and college. She graduated from the University of South Florida with her BA in Humanities and Cultural Studies in 2015. Because of her passion for medicine, Jana was accepted into the University of Kentucky PA program. For the past three years, she has been committed to honing her skills and identifying which field of medicine she would see herself working in. During the clinical year, Jana found that she would gravitate toward neurology. In July 2022, she obtained her Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies. Due to her desire to further expand her medical knowledge and provide better patient care, she decided to accept a position as a neurology resident and dedicate this next year to being educated in this vital subspecialty.
After residency, Jana was employed with UK Healthcare in Neurology.
