Professional Interests/Career Goals/Involvements: My professional interests include cardiology as well as critical care. In addition to becoming a well-rounded clinical pharmacist, I have made it a personal goal to have my research project published in a journal where it can potentially lead to great impact on patient care. After residency I plan on pursuing a PGY-2 residency in one of these interest areas. One short term professional goal I plan to attain is becoming a board-certified pharmacotherapy specialist. My long-term goals include working as a clinical pharmacy specialist at a large academic medical center where I will be able to precept both student pharmacists and residents. Lastly, I would like to actively participate in the advancement of the pharmacy profession through professional organizations such as ACCP and ASHP.
About Me: Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy cooking and trying new foods. I am an avid Cleveland sports fan and I enjoy watching and going to games when I am able. I also enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends utilizing the Cleveland Metroparks system.
