Stephanie Byers, PA-C

Stephanie was drawn to the field of medicine during her involvement with The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon. This student-run philanthropy (the largest in the world) is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Working closely with children who were battling cancer, Stephanie was inspired to pursue a career in medicine.

Initially focused on pediatrics, Stephanie discovered an even stronger interest in gastroenterology during her PA training. Her history of GI issues as a child gave her a personal perspective, and working with an exceptional mentor and preceptor reinforced her passion for this specialty. Joining the GANV team in Fall 2014, Stephanie’s dedication to her field and empathy for her patients are evident in her thoughtful and caring approach.

A native of Pittsburgh, Stephanie is an avid Penn State and Steelers fan. She moved to Northern Virginia for the fast-paced environment and wide selection of activities—but is also happy to have found a large contingent of fellow fans.
