How did you get interested in the profession of pharmacy? I became interested in the profession of pharmacy after taking an introduction to pharmacy course as an undergrad. Until that point, I never realized all that pharmacists were engaged in. Throughout the course, speakers from different areas of pharmacy came and shared what they did and I saw how much patient interaction pharmacists can have. It is this high level of patient care that attracted me to the profession. Upon finishing the course, I started working in a pharmacy and have been there ever since.

Why did you choose OPA as a rotation? I chose OPA as a rotation site because I have heard from previous students what a great experience it is. In choosing this rotation, I wanted to gain more experience learning what state associations do and to gain insight into the organization behind the Annual Conference and Trade Show. In addition, I wanted to learn more about what goes into publishing the monthly journal.

What was the most significant or surprising experience at OPA? The most surprising experience at OPA was how such a small number of people is able to put together an event like the OPA Annual Conference. Before spending a month at OPA, I had been to the Annual Conference several times, but I never realized how much work was going on behind the scenes. From my first day of rotation, I got introduced to the organized, craziness that leads up to the Annual Conference. It is unbelievable how such a small number of people can work together to accomplish so much.

What other pharmacy associations/organizations do you belong to? APhA-ASP, SSHP, Phi Lambda Sigma, Rho Chi
