Jamie Stevens Jones, PA-C
After graduating from Virginia Tech with a degree in Psychology, I felt a deep calling into the medical field with my empathetic nature prompting me to attend Physician Assistant school.
I have been practicing medicine as a PA over the last 12 years. I started in the South Pacific with the National Health Service Corps working with the underserved Polynesian community. I then returned to my hometown in Virginia to work for a Cardiology group for 2 years in the hospital and outpatient clinic. Through this opportunity, I was recruited to start an APP program as a Hospitalist PA. I did this for nine years, but I always had a pull towards Holistic and Alternative medicine.
I clearly see a role for Traditional medicine, but I think there is much to be gained and learned from a Holistic perspective. I am excited to be at Docs Outside the Box and this career move came at a great time after working tirelessly through the COVID-19 pandemic. I want to provide an alternative to pharmaceutical medications and an improved quality of life. The healthcare field primarily fascinates me, and I am so happy to be here. My dream has always been to live close to the water…AKA ‘my happy place’. My faith and spirituality are extremely important to me as well as my family which is best described as modern: 2 stepsons, 3 grandchildren, a daughter and 2 fur babies along with my loving supportive husband.
