    • 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.

    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

Columbus is a diverse and vibrant community. The city strikes a unique balance of big city arts & entertainment and the warmth & sensibilities of the midwest. Learn more about life outside of our residency program here.
