From an early age Professor Galloway had a focused interest in medicine. She was mentored by a pediatrician in Williamsburg, Virginia throughout her high school and undergraduate careers, assisting with patient care and office duties. Her love of medicine grew under this mentorship.
She attended Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia earning her Bachelor of Science in Biology with Honors Distinction. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree she applied and was accepted to the Physician Assistant program at Mountain State University in Beckley, West Virginia. While attending MSU, Prof. Galloway earned her second Bachelor’s degree, a Bachelor of Medical Science, concurrently with her Master of Science Physician Assistant.

Later, Prof. Galloway worked as a hospitalist physician assistant at Bristol Regional Medical Center until she decided to return to rural emergency medicine with Team Health in Big Stone Gap, Virginia in 2006. Prof. Justus has an affinity for rural medicine, in particular her ER family at Lonesome Pine Hospital. During 2008-2009, she enjoyed an opportunity to care for pediatric patients in Marion, Virginia on a PRN basis with Mountain View Pediatrics.
Currently, Prof. Galloway lives on Boone Lake in Piney Flats, Tennessee with her son and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Lochlan and Finley.
