Jennifer Ramirez, PA-C, MSPAS, CAQ PSYCH

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.

Thomas Martin, PA-C, MSPAS

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.


I grew up in Arizona and attended the University of Arizona, graduating with a degree in political science. After college, I moved to Washington, DC and worked for several members of congress, political campaigns, and private sector firms. While in Washington, I realized my interest in medicine and joined a volunteer fire department in the DC area, spending many nights responding to 911 calls. I decided to leave politics and become a PA. I later graduated from Midwestern University in Glendale with a Masters of Medical Science. At graduation, I was recognized as the PA Student of the Year for the state of Arizona, and received Midwestern’s Distinguished Service Award. After my initial training, I completed a post-graduate fellowship at Banner MD Anderson in surgical oncology, specializing in head and neck cancers. Working with cancer patients helped me realize my passion for taking care of people, connecting with them, and helping patients realize their life goals while dealing with serious illness. I carry that same passion for serving others into my practice of psychiatry. Outside of work, I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have a dog, 2 cats and a wonderful young kiddo. I enjoy spending time with family, creative writing, reading, playing sports and collecting vinyl records.
