How did you get interested in the profession of pharmacy? I started reading about Walter Reed and his work in tropical diseases during the 3rd grade. I started to work in a drug store when I was 17. Once I got into college, I changed major as a freshman from zoology to pre-pharmacy. I would have to say working during high school and early college in a drugstore gave me the insight into the profession of pharmacy that led me to start my path to becoming a pharmacist.

Why did you choose OPA as a rotation? It is truly a unique rotation site. It can afford the pharmacy student many professional connections to other pharmacists, and a greater understanding of the role of pharmacists in government, professional organizations and many other issues regarding healthcare and pharmacy.

What was the most significant or surprising experience at OPA? How important the role of politics plays in our profession. It was interesting to view the behind-the-scenes in how our government operates.

What other pharmacy associations/organizations do you belong to? APCO, OPA, and OSU Alumni Association.
