Hometown: Shelby, Ohio
Undergraduate: University of Findlay
College of Pharmacy: University of Findlay
Professional Interests/Career Goals/Involvements: I have an interest in multiple different critically care settings, specifically medical intensive care and emergency medicine. Short term, my goals are to publish findings from my research, obtain a position as a critical care pharmacist, and become a board certified critical care pharmacist. Long term, my goals are to be active in precepting students and residents, as well as being active in pharmacy organizations like SCCM.
About Me: My interests outside of pharmacy include playing and watching sporting events (football, baseball, basketball, tennis…you name it, I’ll watch it), trying new restaurants and breweries, watching movies, and going to trivia nights with my friends and co-residents.

Hometown: Morgantown, West Virginia
Undergraduate: West Virginia University School of Pharmacy
College of Pharmacy: WVU Medicine, Morgantown, West Virginia
Professional Interests/Career Goals/Involvements: My primary interests include the neuroscience ICU, cardiac ICU, and emergency medicine. My short term goals are to publish an original research manuscript, become BCCCP certified, and obtain a position as a clinical specialist on an interprofessional medical team at an academic medical center. I also enjoy teaching students and hope to become a preceptor shortly after residency. I would also like to remain a member of professional organizations such as SCCM and further progress the profession of pharmacy by holding a leadership position. I chose to complete my PGY-2 residency here at UH Cleveland Medical Center due to the wide variety of learning experiences offered alongside a passionate group of preceptors.
About Me: I enjoy spending time with family and friends, beach hopping Lake Erie’s shoreline, trying Cleveland’s best local restaurants and bakeries, and cheering on my favorite baseball team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.
