Recess is arguably every kid’s favorite part of school. It means going outside, stretching the legs, and getting pelted by a stray dodgeball. What does Recess mean when you’re getting your Master’s Degree to become a Physician’s Assistant (PA)? For Andrew Pearson, it’s getting in a few laps between classes.
Born in Tucson Arizona, but living through most of the western states, Andrew started riding in Sun Valley, Idaho at 16. He started with long backcountry rides on moto trails, but as his riding improved he branched out into many more styles of riding. He’s never felt like he falls into a specific discipline, but rather enjoys, “a good ol’ fashion mountain bike ride.” He’s now on his way to becoming a PA at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego.
Future plans include bridging his love for medicine with his passion for bikes. He’s not sure how yet, or where life will take him after graduation. But, he’s excited for the time he’s spending in sunny California. Have an idea for him? Leave it in the comments below.
