Jacob is a Physician Assistant working with the internal medicine department. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Indiana University, and earned an MPAS at Bay Path University.
A native of Peru, Massachusetts, Jacob chose to work in the Berkshires in order to give back to the community in which he was brought up in. He is a firm believer in "mens sana in corpore sano"- a sound mind in a sound body. "If we make healthy choices every day," he says, "we lay the foundation for a high quality lifestyle, filled with both mental and physical well being." He is passionate about primary care because it provides him the opportunity to form relationships with patients and work with them in an outpatient setting, tailoring their treatment regimens to their lifestyles.
In his spare time, Jacob enjoys powerlifting, painting, board games, hiking and spending time with his wife and daughters.
