Pharmacy educators have always been an integral part of ASHP membership. Throughout my career, I have had the good fortune to work with amazing ASHP members, colleagues, and pharmacy educators. The Section of Pharmacy Educators (SPE) has provided an ASHP home for pharmacy educators and the vital role we play in securing a bright future for health-system pharmacists. The opportunity to serve ASHP, the Section of Pharmacy Educators, and the pharmacy profession is something that I am deeply grateful to be considered for. Serving ASHP members and colleagues is one of the highest honors and something I am deeply passionate to do. The SPE has made an incredibly positive impact over the first few years of existence. I believe the SPE will continue to lead positive change for the pharmacy profession as well as the individuals we serve as pharmacists and educators. If elected, I will do my due diligence to ensure members of the SPE are well represented, their concerns are heard, and their actions are recognized by ASHP and ASHP leadership. Ensuring pharmacy education is ever improving and providing the highest level of patient care is a driving force for my continued endeavors to serve you and ASHP.
I am humbled and honored to be nominated for the director-at-large position of the Section of Pharmacy Educators. I look forward to the opportunity to serve every member of this section! Thank you, in advance, for your thoughtful consideration of allowing me to serve you in this role.
