    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?”

     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?

    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.
