Outside of Pharmacy

I enjoy playing with my pups, spending time with family, board games, reading, and playing guitar. A fun fact about myself is that I am ambidextrous!

Why MUSC

I chose MUSC because I was interested in challenging myself and was interested in the opportunity to participate in a 24-hour on-call service. I was also impressed by how supportive and helpful the residents were when I reached out with questions regarding the program.
