Elizabeth McHugh, PA-C, M.P.A.S.- Director of Student Wellness Recreation and Athletics
Elizabeth McHugh is the Director of Student Wellness Recreation and Athletics, and a graduate of Evergreen. The experience she had as a student here shaped her interest and philosophy about providing care and support to students. Elizabeth believes in a holistic approach to developing your own sense of well-being, and that while the basics such as eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercise are important to your overall health, so are activities and experiences on which you choose to focus your attention. Choosing to cook, and/or savor a good meal, experiencing the forest, and spending time with people who lift you up, and bring out the best in you, are all excellent ways to promote a sense of well-being, and increase your capacity to be engaged in the important work of being a student and a citizen.
