Ashley V. Sullivan, MPAS, PA-C
Ashley Sullivan is a Neurosurgery Physician Assistant from Boston, MA who has moved to the Waco area to join Texas Spine & Neurosurgery in April 2018.
She grew up the oldest of four children in Norwood, MA, a suburb of Boston. She is very close to her younger sisters and brother who live in California and Massachusetts. As a child, she rode, drove, and showed Morgan Horses and competed across the country in dressage horse shows. She was named Grand Champion in 2000 in her division at the Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show. She stopped riding in the early 2000’s and is excited to start riding again when she moves to Texas.
Ms. Sullivan attended Ursuline Academy, an all-girls Christian High School, and then received her Bachelor of Science in Biochemical Sciences and Business Management from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She graduated with a Master in Physician Assistant Studies from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University in Boston. Ms. Sullivan is a board-certified Physician Assistant who has worked in General Surgery and Neurosurgery at Saint Anne’s Hospital, a community hospital in the city of Fall River, MA. Ms. Sullivan is also a surgical first-assistant in spine and brain surgeries who loves being in the operating room and seeing her patients improve after surgery.
Outside of the OR, Ms. Sullivan enjoys traveling internationally and domestically, hiking, skiing/snowboarding, painting/drawing, listening to country music, and eating BBQ. She is looking forward to picking up new hobbies in Waco.
Ms. Sullivan has moved to Texas with her husband Stephen McGrath. They visited Waco in the Fall of 2017 and fell in love with all that Texas and Waco has to offer. They are thrilled to have left the New England weather and traffic behind and find some good BBQ in Texas!
