Julie Thornton, PA-C
Born and raised in Canton, Ohio, Julie Thornton practiced orthopedics and inpatient medicine in Virginia for eight years. She joined the AFM team in 2013, bringing along a passion for family medicine and the chance to make a difference through close patient interactions.
Julie graduated from the University of Dayton with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and later obtained her master’s in Physician Assistant Studies from Marietta College in 2005.
I believe a good practitioner treats the disease; the great practitioner treats the patient who has the disease.
I believe it is important to “work hard but play harder.” When I am not hard at work, I am either on an outdoor adventure, at the gym, or spending time with family (outside). I am a huge advocate of eating healthy and exercising. Healthy mind + healthy body = healthy life.
Julie provides care in the acute/urgent care setting. She particularly enjoys treating lacerations, fracture care, and injections, in addition to caring for patients with common illnesses.
Her personal interests include:
• Trail running
• Walking her two Rhodesian Ridgebacks
