Ambulatory Care practice has been my passion for over two decades and there is not a more exciting time than now to be an ambulatory care pharmacist! Opportunities abound for ambulatory care practitioners to fully establish themselves as essential members of the patient care team. As we face an evolving healthcare landscape, avenues for building sustainable practices, expanding scope of practice, and positively influencing patient outcomes lie before us. We must be prepared and motivated to seize the opportunities.

ASHP and the Section provide a wealth of tools and resources to support each member’s professional needs and offers opportunities to collaborate and advocate for the profession. Collectively, the expertise and talent among colleagues in this Section is unmatched. Through the years we have effectively brought together our diverse experiences and perspectives for the benefit of all. Amidst the disruption in healthcare, we must continue to build and share expertise for the benefit of the profession and, most importantly, the patients we serve.

Both ASHP and the Section have served as key contributors to my professional development and continue to provide valuable resources to guide growth in ambulatory care at Intermountain. I have benefitted greatly from the professional connections and collaborations facilitated by the Section. With decades of ambulatory care leadership experience and service within ASHP, I feel prepared to serve as Director-at-Large for the Section. I am honored by the nomination to serve this talented professional community.
