Michelle Hruska, PA
Michelle begun her career caring for patients right after high school when she joined the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. After four years of active duty she continued her service to this country in the active Naval Reserves for six more years. During this time, she earned her undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from The College of William and Mary in Virginia. She utilized that degree by working in academic research conducting studies pertaining to fetal alcohol syndrome and cancer. After more than a decade of living abroad and across the United States, she moved back home to Texas to be near family. While taking some time to evaluate her next academic goal, she worked as a critical care tech in a local emergency department to gain even more clinical experience.
She then attended the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and earned her Master ’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies in 2009. After earning her postgraduate degree, she practiced emergency medicine for nearly a decade in the Clear Lake area with the same physician staff that encouraged her to work towards that degree when she was just a tech. Michelle now looks forward to using her knowledge and skills to help care for the patients in the Affinity Urgent Care community.
Michelle currently resides in Galveston, TX. Her hobby is Traveling. Anywhere. Anytime.
“Travel changes you. As you move through life and this world you change things slightly. You leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you.”
