    • Type of Residency Training Completed at OSU:
      Pharmacy Practice (PGY1)

    “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.

    • PGY2 Pain Management & Palliative Care Residency
      The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to pursue a second year of residency because I have a passion for palliative care and pain management, and a year of residency focusing in these fields will provide the best training for me to become a well-rounded clinician. I am looking forward to becoming a leader in this specialty and advocating for my profession throughout this year of residency and beyond. I know this could only become possible by completing a PGY2 and this year will set a solid foundation for my future.

     “Why Ohio State?”

    It was obvious that Ohio State was a perfect fit for me. The Pain Management and Palliative Care program is robust, with a focus on palliative care and a unique hospice component that fit my desire to care for end-of-life patients in my PGY2 year. It was obvious in my interview that the preceptors of my program would treat me as a colleague, focusing on my development as a learner, but also giving me the autonomy to develop my own practice. They are very personable, helpful, and simply a fun gang to be around! The opportunities and learning experiences provided by Ohio State are unmatchable. I am so proud to be a Buckeye!

    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
