    “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 did I choose to complete a residency at Ohio State?”

     I choose to complete a residency to have more experiences in a variety of different areas as a licensed pharmacist. With interests in transitions of care, ambulatory care, and general medicine; I wanted more opportunities to learn and grow from preceptors and mentors with expertise in individual disease states. Residency has given me those possibilities as well as opportunities to strengthen my research and teaching skills as I continue to strengthen as a professional. Ohio State was an easy choice for residency due to our countless opportunities, variety of out-patient clinic settings, well-defined pharmacist roles, room for expansion and research, as well as, a supportive team to accomplish all of these goals.

    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.
