Practice/Research Interests

Prof. McLellan’s research interests include assessment as well as professionalism, specifically creating a supportive, effective process for PA students to develop their professional identity as a PA.

Outside the Classroom

Prof. McLellan enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids, and two bunnies. She would like to say she’s an avid reader of novels, but that would be false. Instead, she is always up for watching a new series or movie and gladly accepts recommendations from students and co-workers.
