As an advocate for advancing pharmacy practice and education, I am excited about collaborating with ASHP to spearhead initiatives that fortify and elevate the preparation of the pharmacy workforce. The Section of Pharmacy Educators serves as a beacon within ASHP, providing a dedicated space and influential voice for educators committed to shaping the future of pharmacy professionals. Drawing from my diverse experiences as a student, resident, faculty member, preceptor, and residency program director, I have witnessed firsthand the profound impact of ASHP's initiatives in pharmacy education. These experiences have propelled me to actively engage with ASHP's SPE SAG on Post Graduate Education and Learning Experiences, where I have contributed to discussions and initiatives surrounding enhancing and optimizing resident training and education. Participating in the SAG has been a transformative experience, enriching my professional journey. I am eager to use this platform to collaborate with fellow educators, inspiring innovative approaches to support pharmacy educators in preparing, engaging, and advancing the pharmacy workforce to optimize health. It is a tremendous honor to have been nominated for Chair of the Section, and I am filled with anticipation for the opportunities that lie ahead for our Section. In alignment with the Section's mission and vision, I am committed to championing initiatives that will shape the future of pharmacy education, ensuring that we continue to educate exceptional pharmacy professionals who positively impact healthcare delivery and patient care.
