Not only does Sarah DeLuca Moulder ’12, ’15 love and appreciate her career as a physician assistant, but she has love and gratitude for every opportunity offered to her through Shenandoah University. “SU was my first choice and it was the best choice,” said Moulder.
During her time at Shenandoah, DeLuca challenged herself not only in the classroom, but also on the field hockey turf. “My undergraduate education as a double biology and psychology major provided me the foundation for lifelong learning and prepared me to continue my masters studies in PA,” said Moulder. “Being a student athlete also helped me to get where I am today.”
Moulder served as the captain of the field hockey team during her senior year, and her teammates weren’t just friends they were family. “When times were tough, we would always work together to get back up, and when times were great we would always be there to celebrate with each other,” said Moulder.
Moulder also met her husband, Tony Moulder ’19, as a result of him attending Shenandoah’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program.
Moulder is now a practicing physician assistant at Selma Medical Associates in Winchester. “I love my career as a physician assistant,” said DeLuca. “Some of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had so far in my career, is having patients request to come see me as a provider. I love when people are happy and satisfied with the care I have provided to them, that they keep coming back to see me.”
Moulder is now working towards completing a Doctorate of Medical Science at Shenandoah. She is anticipating to graduate in May 2024.
Moulder’s advice for current students is: “Get as many different clinical experiences as possible before graduation, once you’re done, the training is on you and your employer.”
