A graduate of Boston’s Simmons College, Dr. Ryan initially received a degree in Studio Art. After running a wine store in Boston for two years, the draw of Alaska and family brought her back home. She completed her required premedical courses, followed by Medical School at Pacific Northwest College of Osteopathic Medicine in Washington.

After working as a hospitalist and doing locums throughout the state of Alaska, she jumped on the opportunity to join IPMS in 2016. Coming from an aviation family, she now holds the designation of Senior Aviation Medical Examiner and enjoys meeting pilots from across the state.
