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

    I would say my time at OSUMC was an accelerated, intense introduction to the world of clinical pharmacy and the academic biomedical apparatus. I learned about appropriate and pragmatic application of pharmacotherapy across diverse practice areas; this has benefitted my career in the field of drug discovery and development. I also learned “soft skills,” like how to effectively interact with colleagues of a varying nature and to be part of a team (“Code Blues” come to mind). The pharmacy administration rotations exposed me to basic tenants I’ve built upon through my career, and often use in my responsibilities as a core laboratory director. Finally, the relationships I formed with preceptors and fellow residents endure to this day. I am grateful to have had my experiences at OSUMC, and to call myself an alum of the program.

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

    I was recently an integral part of a team responsible for moving SJCRH’s first ever novel small molecule investigational new drug toward the clinic. The antimalarial SJ733 is slated for a single ascending dose Phase I study in healthy subjects in early 2016.

    I was a co-author on several recent manuscripts in Cancer Cell and Cell Reports, both of which are high-impact journals in the field of oncology research.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

     I chose to complete a residency because I wanted to continue to build upon my clinical skill set as a licensed pharmacist. Through unique experiences as a student, I also had a growing interest in pharmacy leadership and management. The combined PGY1 & PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center perfectly fit my needs and allowed me to pursue both interests.

     “Why Ohio State?”

     Ohio State is widely known across the country for its Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program. Ohio State’s strong clinical focus during the PGY1 year paired with their prominent history of building successful pharmacy leaders made the program a very appealing destination for me. During my interview, I was enamored by the rich history of the program and the strong sense of pride displayed throughout the entire Department of Pharmacy.  I left my interview knowing Ohio State would provide me with the clinical and administrative skill sets necessary to positively impact patient care while leading the advancement of our profession.

    “Why do you enjoy precepting pharmacy residents?”

    I find precepting pharmacy residents to be a rewarding way to give back to the profession of pharmacy. As previous preceptors have done for me, precepting allows me to work side-by-side with the resident to promote their growth and learning.  Being a resident/new practitioner is a challenging time as you work to leave your footprints in the pharmacy world, but preceptors are there to help.  I enjoy being able to mentor residents and share my knowledge, skills, and experiences. Furthermore, I am challenged by residents professionally so that I can stay on top of my pharmacy game!
