I am honored for the opportunity to serve as chair of the Section of Clinical Scientists and Specialists. In the years I have actively been involved within the section, I have seen the amount of growth and advocacy that ASHP has done for its members and, most importantly, to advance our profession. When working with ASHP, the possibilities are endless with respect to developing programming and resources for all facets of the profession. I am fortunate to have been at the ground level of some of these endeavors during my time on the section advisory group. During my tenure, we developed a recorded pharmacist series to enhance knowledge within the profession and created a podcast that provided micro-continuing education credits for the membership.
If elected, I would follow the direction of ASHP and put its members first and foremost while advocating for practice advancement. I would serve as the membership’s voice and promote active collaboration, information exchange, and further promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion. I hope to use my prior experiences within the section to drive practice improvement and active engagement of the membership, with a particular focus on member wellbeing. I will work to provide value change to the profession focusing on the totality of the person -- taking care of ourselves so we can better serve our patients. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve ASHP and the members of the section.
