Megan Ady was born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley. She completed her undergraduate studies at Roanoke College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry and a Minor in Mathematics in 2010. She completed her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Shenandoah University In Winchester, Virginia in December 2013. After graduation, she joined Augusta Health as a family practice PA and operated her clinic as the sole provider for three years.  

During that time, she helped restructure and operate an occupational health clinic in Low Moor, Virginia for Bacova Guild Industries which she did for six years. In 2016, Professor Ady transitioned to full-time practice in urgent care in Covington, Virginia. There, she also served as the lead PA within the care team and coordinated staff training and education. She became a Nationally Certified Medical Examiner for the US Department of Transportation. With a continued drive to improve overall health, promote health education, and provide access to rural healthcare, Professor Ady became an American Heart Association BLS, HeartSaver, and First Aid instructor in 2018. With several years of clinical experience under her belt, she felt it was time to start mentoring students and have them work with her in her clinics. It was then that she knew she had a passion for teaching and helping students pursue their PA education. 

Professor Ady joined the Murphy Deming faculty in January 2021. She states, “if you don’t know the medicine you can’t make the diagnosis and I want to help make those connections.” A resident of Bath County, Virginia, she lives with her husband and four small children.  She enjoys spending time with her family, vacationing, working in the garden, and going to concerts. She owns a clothing boutique named Lady Ady’s. She is a volunteer EMT with her local rescue squad, certified in BLS, ACLS and PALS. She continues to work clinically in the urgent care setting and as needed to help with staffing shortages at Bath Community Hospital.
