About

I'm originally from Kansas City, Missouri. What I love about teaching is the opportunity to empower the next generation of pharmacists to lead the change they wish to see in the profession of pharmacy. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy traveling, listening to live music, playing trivia, and spending time with family and friends.
