Rachel Nye is a Physician Assistant at UPMC from Union City. She attended Gannon University for a combined bachelor’s in Health Sciences and a master’s in Physician Assistant Studies.
In 2020, Rachel received the Outstanding Graduate Student for Physician Assistant Studies award. In the next 5 to 10 years, Rachel hopes to continue learning and growing as a rural primary care provider. Additionally, with being new to the area, she hopes to develop a sense of community and become as involved as she can.
So far, one of Rachel’s favorite parts of living in Venango County is the trails. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, running, yoga, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. She is also working on her green thumb and plans on starting a mini garden this year, and after work, she enjoys attending yoga classes or grabbing a drink at breweries.
Rachel’s favorite part of working here is the true sense of community. She personally gets to know her patients and their families–it goes far beyond medicine and they feel like family to her.
