Emma Reichart, MHS, P.A.-C is a Colorado transplant from a small coastal town in New England. She graduated from Bates College (Lewiston, ME) in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology/Pre-Med and concentrations in Public Health and Chemistry. Emma spent countless hours serving the homeless and refugee communities, traveling on medical mission trips, caring for those with varying levels of developmental and mental disabilities, and working in a primary care/pediatric setting, where she learned to appreciate the diversity in medicine – across all age, gender, socioeconomic and mental health spectrums.
Emma then completed a Masters in Health Science and Physician Assistant Studies at Quinnipiac University (Hamden, CT), one of the top 5 programs in the country. There, she received high-quality workforce training that fostered teamwork, critical-thinking skills, high ethical standards and a deep respect for diverse populations. She was selected to represent her program as an Urban Health Scholar in partnership with UCONN’s Center for Public Health and Health Policy. Alongside fellow scholars, Emma received further training in cultural linguistics, population health, healthcare financing and management, advocacy leadership, community resources, and quality improvement.
Her healthcare interests include family medicine, urgent care, functional medicine and nutrition.
Emma is a closet-creative who loves to draw, paint, design and make music – whether that’s playing the piano or harmonizing to anything with a tune. She also loves to spend time with her friends and family outdoors, camping, hiking, kayaking, and skiing.
