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

    Without question, the OSU-HSPA residency program has been critically influential in my career. Specifically, my current success is the product of those mentors, many of which are associated with the residency program, who have been immensely impactful in my life. And so, in my current role as Associate Director of the Purdue University College of Pharmacy Center for Medication Safety Advancement and Clinical Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, I strive to mentor others in their own professional journey. The OSU-HSPA program in conjunction with the Latiolais Leadership Program (LLP) gave me the mentorship, training, and experience to be a leader of pharmacy no matter the career; more than just a program designed to train the next pharmacy operations manager, the skills, opportunities, and mentors throughout my residency helped me maximize my own interests and passions. To date, this has culminated in my current non-traditional role as I lead a team of people, manage strategic initiatives, form global partnerships, and educate others as an expert in medication safety. As a professional, I do my very best to live and work by the “Latiolais Success Characteristics” as published in the September 2013 Hospital Pharmacy Director’s Forum article:

    1. Be dedicated to Leadership
    2. Sincerely care about your people
    3. Never be satisfied with the status quo
    4. Implement your vision

    In everything I do, I hope to excel in these tenets, making my colleagues, my patients, my customers, my family, and my fellow alumni of this renowned program proud.

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    Residency is the best way to launch from school with the highest possible trajectory. In no other way can one so drastically sharpen clinical skills and professional prowess in such an abbreviated period of time. Residency provides the unique opportunity to gain experience in research, patient care, presentations, committees, and interdisciplinary collaboration under the mentorship of experienced practitioners. I can’t think of a better use of my time!

     “Why Ohio State?”

    This institution has an extraordinary legacy of medical advancements and excellence in training. OSU has an incredible variety of practice experiences and provides a wonderfully comprehensive residency education. The final perk that drove my decision was the opportunity to connect and collaborate with some of the best young minds in the country!

    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.

Columbus, Ohio
