Undergraduate Degree:
BS Psychology + Biology, West Virginia University

Destiny Noel graduated from WVU with a B.S. in Psychology and Biology, and is originally from Ellamore, WV in Randolph County. She is currently a second year in the WVU School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program, and part of the inaugural Physician Assistant class.

During her undergrad, she traveled to Ghana and Nicaragua where she provided medical and public health services to resource reduced communities; it was on those trips that she realized her deep passion for rural medicine, specifically in women’s health. In WV, she worked as an EMT in a rural area.

She loves her rural Appalachian heritage and working with the amazing people of small WV communities. Through her experiences, she has not only noted many of the disparities faced by rural communities, but also their strengths and perseverance; this has truly influenced her desire to work in a rural women’s health clinic in WV post graduation.
