I moved to the United States in 1986 and attended a private Baptist school for grades 1-12. I knew that I wanted to be a pharmacist after shadowing a clinical pharmacist at the NIH the summer before college. In 2002, I moved to St. Louis for my residency. I met my husband Ryan in a church band. We have a daughter, Nadia (born October 2009), a son Noah (born August 2011), and two cats, Bill and Ted. I'm obsessed with to-do lists, sweet tea, fantasy football, and anything Sean Penn. My latest obsessions include gelato, PF Chang's Mongolian Beef, and watching chick flicks (preferably all in one night). I hate any exercise, other than Wii games, I love to laugh, my favorite color is black, I'm very passionate about my Palestinian heritage, and I will one day beat the habit of nail-biting, hopefully, maybe.
