    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.

    Any particular career accomplishments you would like to highlight? Publications, Awards, Grant Funding, etc?

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to complete a residency to learn and grow in an environment where I am challenged as well as supported by fellow pharmacy residents, preceptors, and the leadership. Not only did I want to further my leadership skills, but my clinical knowledge. An individual with a strong background in pharmacotherapy and team-based patient care will be more adapted for leadership within health-system pharmacy, as this teamwork is imperative throughout your career. 

     “Why Ohio State?”

    I chose The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for the people and the mentorship they provide. It is evident the Pharmacy Residents are a valued group within the OSU family, which does not change following completion of the residency. The extensive alumni network allows residents to make connections throughout the country, sharing their experiences and knowledge to further advance the profession. The Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency at The Ohio State University is a legacy that will only continue to grow, providing unparalleled opportunities for their residents.

    Why do you enjoy precepting pharmacy residents?

    One of the reasons I returned to an academic medical center following residency training was the
    opportunity to be integrated into the pharmacy residency program as a preceptor. I enjoy taking
    residents on rotation and watching my role as a preceptor change from providing direct instruction to
    modeling and coaching to facilitating. Being a preceptor also allows me to give back to the profession by sharing my knowledge with others. Patient care, teaching, and research are all equally important
    aspects of clinical pharmacy at OSUWMC and remain part of the foundation we try to lay as effective
    preceptors for each of our residents. One of my proudest and most rewarding moments as a preceptor
    was when my resident’s research project was accepted for publication in a major journal. Nothing
    excites me more than to watch residents grow into true practice leaders whether that be over the
    course of a one month clinical rotation or a yearlong residency research project.
