Megan Preti is the second-year fellow at UVA Health. She is from Virginia Beach. Before graduate school, she received her degree in biology from UVA.
She attended the University of Pittsburgh to pursue her master’s in health administration, where she had the opportunity to complete a summer fellowship and administrative residency. Megan completed her administrative residency at Allegheny Health Network in quality and safety. She was able to use the knowledge and skills learned through her residency and apply them during her summer fellowship with the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, which focused on comprehensive maternal care.
Megan was excited to begin her fellowship at UVA Health because of the culture of integrity and respect as well as a strong focus on patient-centered care.
Outside of work, Megan enjoys playing soccer, hiking, and traveling.
Jessica Bressler is the first-year fellow at UVA Health. She is from Julian, Pennsylvania, a small neighboring town of State College.
Before beginning her graduate degree, she received an associate’s degree in radiologic technology and a bachelor’s degree in business/healthcare administration from Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, Pennsylvania. She is also a board-certified radiologic technologist.
Jess attended Penn State University and received her master’s degree in health administration. Throughout her time at Penn State, she was the student-elected representative on her program’s MHA Committee, a teaching assistant, and completed a year-long administrative residency at UPMC Altoona and UPMC Bedford. During her residency, she worked directly for the VP of Operations, leading and completing projects among services lines, strategy, and daily hospital operations.
During this fellowship, she is most excited to learn about academic medicine, be involved in meaningful projects, and help better the lives of the patients served by UVA Health, all while working alongside a team that is as committed to UVA Health's mission and patients as she is.
Outside of work, Jess enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching sports, traveling, exercising, and discovering new activities.
