Tracie Jefferson, PA-C
I am very passionate about family practice because of the relationships it fosters. I also enjoy advocating on behalf of my patients to coordinate their care. My goal is to build a partnership with my patients that is founded on trust. I want to promote an open and interactive dialogue where questions are encouraged. In doing this, I believe it empowers those people to be an active part of their care. I have a sincere desire to know you as a whole person rather than just learning about the symptom or disease. I think this gives both of us the best opportunity to find treatments that fit into your lifestyle and afford the best chances for living life to the fullest.
If you had told me when I was young that I would one day be practicing medicine, I likely would have laughed as I rambled on about my dreams to be a journalist. Quickly in my college career though, I realized that it wasn’t as satisfying as I envisioned so I took some time off. During that time the local newspaper in Mobile, Alabama had an article about difficulty responding to 911 calls due to a lack of volunteers. I took the EMT class and quickly fell in love with medicine. Over the next fourteen years, my career would take me through being a paramedic here in Pierce County as well as Florida, Maryland, and ultimately back here to Washington – which I have always considered home. When I returned, I re-evaluated my career and decided that pursuing Physician Assistant training was the right path for me. I had the pleasure of attending the University of Washington’s MEDEX Northwest program to complete my education.
My family and I live nearby and are active in our church. I especially enjoy singing and working with children. After sustaining a broken ankle and two herniated discs, I had gained a lot of weight. Through diet and exercise I lost 100 pounds and discovered that I really love challenging myself physically. I have completed two Tough Mudders and one sprint distance triathlon. My next goals are to complete a half marathon and Tough Mudder number three.
