Julie VanderMark began her career as a Physician Assistant at DMC in 2007.

Each day, she brought to work her compassion and a wonderful sense of humor.

Julie passed away on September 30, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.  Her faith and strength during this time was an inspiration to many, and her departure has left a void in the hearts of those who knew her and loved her.

She was a devoted wife, daughter, mom of two dogs and sports lover who had the ability to connect with those that she met, leaving them with a smile and a lighter heart. Julie’s commitment to her profession was evident to all the patients that she cared for. Her spirit and memory will remain a part of Derry Medical for many years to come.

In her memory, DMC Charitable Foundation awards a $1,000 Julie VanderMark Scholarship each year to a local high school senior who will be pursuing a career in a medically-related field.
