How did you get interested in the profession of pharmacy? I shadowed various healthcare professionals in Toledo & Cleveland (e.g., MDs, physician assistants, nurses, public health educators). I found that pharmacists could be a great resource for patients about their medications and thus impact their quality of life greatly.

Why did you choose OPA as a rotation? I have most enjoyed in pharmacy school leading others and setting up new events to benefit patients. A rotation with the OPA during the Annual meeting would allow me to continue to experience the satisfaction of pulling off something big!

What plans do you have upon graduation? I hope to work in a community pharmacy near Cincinnati.

What other pharmacy associations/organizations do you belong to? OSHP, ASHP, SSHP, SNPHA, PLS, Rho Chi. Of course APHA-ASP & OPA!
