I believe in pharmacy! As a second-generation pharmacist and pharmacy educator, my identity is tied strongly to our profession. I am proud of who we are. Our profession is facing an unprecedented time of change and challenge. Historically, as a profession, we have been able to take advantage of times like these and use them as opportunities to enhance our practice and further cement our critical role in healthcare team. This time is no different, and I want to be a leader as we overcome these challenges.
Our membership needs our support and connectivity during this dynamic period. We cannot spend our time working in silos. We must provide resources and share best practices so that we all are moving in the same direction. I have seen this in action during my time as a member of ASHP and as a member of the pharmacy practice experiences SAG. I have benefited greatly from the work that our organization has done, and I want to ensure that other members have the same experience. Now is a crucial time to ensure these resources and opportunities are available and optimized for our membership. I believe I can help do that.
I would be honored to serve as chair of the SICP. I promise that I will do my best to serve my fellow pharmacists and our membership so that future generations of pharmacists can be as proud of our profession as I am.
