    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.

    • PGY2 Pain and Palliative Resident

    “Why did I choose to complete a residency?”

    I chose to pursue PGY2 residency training in pain management and palliative care due to the devastating impact that both undertreated and excessively treated pain can have on patient outcomes.  It is a challenging and evolving specialty that I believe pharmacists can make a large contribution to.  

     “Why Ohio State?”

    I chose to pursue this training at The Ohio State University based on the knowledge, skills, and diverse experiences of the pain and palliative care preceptors, who share an obvious passion for teaching and mentoring.  This, along with OSU’s long history of excellence and ingenuity in healthcare practice, made this the ideal program for me to further develop my knowledge and skills in this specialty.

    “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!
