Teaching Philosophy
“It is my hope as an educator to provide Anesthesiologist Assistant students with a grounded, optimistic, supportive learning structure. Focusing on interpersonal skills and obtaining a wide variety of anesthesia techniques and experiences are optimal for growth. Perfection is unattainable, yet we must strive to always continue to learn and mold ourselves into our best versions. These pupils are the future of the Anesthesia Care Team Model and I am proud to represent my expanding career!”

Interests and Background
Jessica Pecherski graduated in 2011 from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in Avian Biology/Pre-Medicine.
