Maria Gluys completed an undergraduate degree in both Physician Assistant Studies and Spanish at Butler University in Indianapolis and later completed a Masters of Physician Assistant Studies graduate degree at University of Nebraska College of Medicine, Omaha. 

Maria has worked in the Emergency Department of Mt. Carmel Health Systems for the past 6 years serving underserved communities in central Ohio and continues to work there a few shifts a month. She has also worked clinically in occupational medicine, internal medicine and urgent care. 

Prior to working at Mt. Carmel Health Systems, Maria and her husband spent 9 months on a medical mission trip in Peru, South America. During that time she worked at a school for underserved children to create medical records, provide access to basic care and provide education for health and hygiene.

Mrs. Gluys has participated in several other medical mission trips including service projects in Costa Rica and Honduras. She has a special interest in medically underserved populations, specifically health obstacles facing the Latino population. She is interested in sharing this passion and educating future physician assistants in ways to serve marginalized populations both locally and internationally. 

Maria is married with three children and enjoys traveling, reading, photography and outdoor adventures.
