Professor Bolton earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Sciences from SUNY Binghamton, in Binghamton, New York.  She went on to earn her Masters of Science in Education with Advanced Certification in Guidance and Counseling from CUNY Brooklyn College , in Brooklyn New York.

She has worked as a teacher for one of New York City’s public school and then went on to be that school’s Guidance Counselor for a number of years before she moved to Florida in 2001.

Motivated by her undying desire to study medicine, she attended Nova Southeastern University, and earned both her Bachelor of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and her Masters of Medical Science degree in 2004. After graduation, she gained her clinical experience in Family Medicine, Cardiology and Internal Medicine.

Professor Bolton came full circle when she joined Nova Southeastern University at Jacksonville in September, 2013, where she is an Assistant Professor in the Physician Assistant Program.  She is now combining her love for both medicine and education as she devotes her experience and training to advancing the physician assistant profession. She is dedicated to assisting the program in producing competent, confident and compassionate physician assistants.

She is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants.  She has volunteered in various church organizations where she has coordinated and developed programs, workshops and seminars for adolescents, women and families. 

Because of her interest in writing, Professor Bolton has written an eBook on forgiveness and hopes to continue writing more eBooks in the future.

She enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, frequenting bookstores, and developing personal blogs.
