Jennifer Bagby, PA-C, MSPAS
I am an Arizona native and yes, a Cardinal fan! I went to Deer Valley High School, graduated from ASU, summa cum laude, and attended AT Still University for my PA degree. I went into PA school intent on pursuing surgery until I went on my first rotation in mental health. I knew on my first day that this was where I was supposed to be. I have since worked for several years in the crisis setting with both voluntary and involuntary patients. I have also worked in a detox facility managing alcohol, opiates, methamphetamine, and benzodiazepine detoxification. This lead me to manage opiate addiction in a methadone clinic then to Suboxone. I truly care about each person that I see and treat. I know that life is hard and there are always obstacles and I want to help the best way I can.

I hail from Wisconsin. I’m married and have a son. I also have two very spoiled dogs. I grew up right outside of Milwaukee and went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I knew I wanted to interact with patients and be a part of the front lines in health care, so I applied to PA school. Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona was gracious enough to accept me into their program. Once I graduated, we decided to stick around Arizona. It’s a beautiful state with wonderful people. My family and I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, and fishing. Living in Arizona gives us easy access to all three. I have been practicing medicine for 8 years and have worked in family medicine, emergency medicine, and psychiatry. Psychiatry gives me the opportunity to help an underserved community and build meaningful relationships with people in need. I care about my patients’ wellbeing and I am just as excited as they are when they experience relief of their symptoms.
