Shilo Gifford, PA-C
Shilo has worked the past several years in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is excited to change her focus to Gynecology and Women’s Health. She is a native of Arizona and grew up in Gilbert, AZ. Following high school, she continued her education at the University of Arizona and received her Bachelors of Science degree with a double major in Physiology and Molecular and cellular Biology. To this day, she remains a loyal Wildcat fan! From there, she went on to complete a Masters degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ.
Shilo knew she had a passion for Women’s health early in her education and training. She loves to help women and empower them to improve their overall health and well-being as well as quality of life. She embraces patient issues in any stage of life and strongly believes that patient education is one of her favorite aspects of her job. Shilo’s past experience includes adolescents, contraceptive management, menopausal symptoms, irregular bleeding and hormone replacement therapy.
Outside of work, Shilo spends time with her husband and three kids. She has two boys and a girl. Not surprisingly, her children keep her busy, but when she has free time, she enjoys hiking, kayaking, camping, cooking (and eating too!), as well as reading a great historical fiction novel.
She is excited to continue empowering women at McDowell Mountain Gynecology and we are thrilled to have her!
