View Résumé/CV

I have dedicated my professional life to teaching, learning, patient care and scholarship. My academic expertise is rooted in didactic and experiential chronic disease management, curriculum delivery, and effective enrollment management for the PharmD program. My teaching philosophy is communicated through competence, example and integration. Scholarship activities are an extension of my interprofessional student integrated clinical practice, programmatic involvement at my practice site, and faculty collaborations in teaching and service. I am credentialed as a certified immunizer, certified diabetes care and education specialist, and a Board-Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist.
