Major Emily (Shanes) De Leon

I’m stationed at Beale AFB, CA, for my first assignment as a PA.   I am currently finishing up my ramp-up since I was out on maternity leave at the end of last year.  In addition to being a family medicine PA-C, I have started to become involved in our MDG outside of the clinic by working on assigning medical coverage for our upcoming Air Show, coordinating an upcoming ROTC visit for 30+ Cadets, and I am the assistant (soon to be lead) for our clinic’s training program.  I am married with a 6 month old little boy and two dogs who have traveled coast to coast on every assignment with me.
