Jonna Austin
Pathologists' Assistant Student

Contact Information:

Hometown: Charlotte, NC

College: Emory University

Career Goals: I hope to work in surgical pathology in a variety of settings and explore the field before becoming an instructor in a pathologists’ assistant program.

Hobbies and Interests: Singing, ballroom dancing, gaming, watching shows and movies with my friends and family, and playing with my cat, Misty

Why Duke: The small class size, academic rigor, and opportunity to learn with the medical students attracted me to Duke. Seeing how welcoming and passionate everyone was during the interview process and hearing about the experiences alumni had with the program made me even more certain that Duke was where I wanted to continue my education.

Why Durham: Durham has great people, great food, and great weather. It is part of the Research Triangle and has so much to explore. I also have family in the area, so it is great to be able to spend time with them.
