    Why was completing a residency at Ohio State beneficial to your career?

    Ohio State was not my first choice when I was looking for residency; in fact, it wasn’t even on my list heading into the ASHP Midyear. When I stopped by the booth to pick up a buckeye candy and subsequently visited the preceptors and practice sites at Ohio State during my interview, that all changed. The variety of opportunities, progressive viewpoints and actions in practice, and robust academic community couldn’t be matched anywhere else. As a major bonus, I really liked everyone – it was a fit. At The Ohio State University, I found my passion for outpatient care and confirmed my love of teaching.

    Throughout my career, I have come back to what I inherited as a graduate of our residency program: the expectation to be an agent of change. I have used the skills I gained during residency to think outside the box, identify opportunities, and work with teams to get things done. One endeavor of which I am especially proud is Partner for Promotion, which I created in collaboration with faculty at OSU in 2005. The model aims to foster change through empowering students and pharmacists to do new things to enhance patient care in community-based practices. I bring to my work with current and future pharmacists that which inspired and equipped me during residency to improve patients’ lives and the profession of pharmacy: maintain character, listen to people and consider their perspectives, and reflect on priorities in your life and work. Also, dig deep – you are capable of more than you think.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?” Because I am interested in a career in administration, residency training is required for the career that I want. To be a good administrator, I need to have sound clinical training, which Ohio State will provide.

    “Why Ohio State?” I chose Ohio State for their emphasis on clinical training, a thoughtfully designed and ever-developing MS curriculum, and because the administrative preceptors at OSU are leaders that I want to emulate.

    Why do you enjoy precepting pharmacy residents?

    I absolutely love teaching both students and residents about the fascinating world of cancer, particularly hematologic cancers. I enjoy sharing my passion for blood disorders and therapeutics with new pharmacists, mentoring residents on various projects and presentations, and serving as an individual resident mentor to help residents through the challenges (both academic and personal) a residency can present. It is incredibly rewarding to see a resident progress from an observer to an active and crucial member of the multidisciplinary team that cares for this unique patient population. Residents also provide me with challenges to keep my job interesting and an opportunity for me to continue to learn on a daily basis.
