Founder

Andrew Baker, PA-C, MBA

Andrew Baker is a practicing PA-C in a Medical and Procedural Dermatology Office located in Ohio. He is a graduate of the University of Findlay Physician Assistant Program in May, 2012. He was class President and a member of the National Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi.

 

As a PA-C, Andrew has worked in Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and Dermatology. Andrew always had a passion for helping others. He has mentored and coached many PAs and colleagues who were troubled financially. For the first several years as a PA, his interest in preparing for his financial future continued to grow. He read books, listened to podcasts, attended lectures and frequently visited with a Certified Financial Planner. He realized personal finance is more than making money, saving, paying off debt and investing. The financial choices made by an individual can change your family tree! In 2014, Andrew paid off more than $100,000 in student loans.

 

Personal finance and financial planning became a continued passion with a desire to learn more. In May 2020, Andrew graduated with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Findlay. This education further shaped Andrew’s desire to learn about financial decision-making and specifically how it impacts Physician Assistants. He started PA 4 Finance, a financial advisory company designed for PAs in any phase. Currently, he works with Pre-PAs, PA Students, Practicing PAs and anyone else in the spectrum of the PA profession.
