Reasons for selecting this career path
While working as a consultant for a healthcare IT company, I encountered pharmacists who were conscientious leaders and strong patient advocates in their health systems. They were passionate about two of the things that I am most passionate about: science and people. At that realization, I decided I wanted to be a pharmacist and haven’t looked back!

Interest in the NPF Executive Committee
I previously served on the ASHP Pharmacy Student Forum as a member and work group lead. Through my volunteer involvement with ASHP, I have met pharmacists from across the country who are eager to put ideas into action to better serve people through our profession. I am thrilled to continue to my involvement as the Vice Chair of the New Practitioners Forum Executive Committee.
Benefits of being involved in ASHP as a New Practitioner
I have seen firsthand how ASHP is committed to developing pharmacy leaders who are passionate about finding answers to the challenges faced by our patients, our profession, and healthcare as a whole. ASHP’s New Practitioners Forum provides many opportunities to learn from peers across the county, to empower and mentor other practitioners, and to influence the direction of the pharmacy profession.
