Outside of Pharmacy

I enjoy visiting local restaurants & breweries, going to the beach, exploring downtown Charleston, and watching Ohio State sports and Bayern Munich. A fun fact about myself is that I've gone paragliding at Torrey Pines!

Why MUSC

I chose MUSC because of the large residency class and the opportunity to train with pharmacists who are leaders within their specialty. MUSC develops leaders in the pharmacy field through rotations, committee involvement, and longitudinal experiences including the 24h in-house on-call program. The strong relationship with the MUSC College of Pharmacy affords residents the opportunity to precept, conduct didactic lectures, and develop a teaching portfolio.

Outside of Pharmacy

I enjoy going to OrangeTheory Fitness, running the Ravenel Bridge, eating ice cream, happy hours with my co-residents, and enjoying nature. A fun fact about myself is that I was born on my parents third wedding anniversary!

Why MUSC

I truly believe that MUSC has helped me grow into the best pharmacist that I can be at this point in my career. MUSC has a variety of inpatient rotations, a hands-on on-call program, valuable research experiences, and opportunities for committee involvement. As an IM resident, I am valued by my physician colleagues and treated as an integral member of the multidisciplinary team. I have felt endless support from preceptors, advisors, RPDs, and 30+ co-residents.
