I know this is one of the biggest questions you’ve asked yourself as you go through your PA journey: How am I going to pay for PA school?! And rightly so! 

Most of us will get into around 100k in student debt loan in order to achieve this goal, and if you have debt from undergrad, that number is going to be higher. Instead of getting discouraged and backing away from your dreams, I want to help you tackle this topic and plan to pay your debt in a smart way! That is why I brought in Kristin, a PA who has an incredible financial journey from which we can all learn!

 Join us as we discuss how she paid 161k in student debt loan in 16 months, things to consider when choosing your program, what you can do before, during and after PA school to tackle your debt, and when to start investing, all to help you reach financial freedom!
