I'm the Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Specialist at CoxHealth in Springfield, Missouri. I do most of my work within the Family Medical Care Center where I work closely with several uncontrolled diabetics with their insulin management. I get to work alongside family medicine residents and also precept the pharmacy residents.

Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy trying new things like restaurants and sites with my husband, Terry. We also enjoy watching baseball and football although we don't always agree on the teams to root for. I also enjoy spending time spoiling my dogs, Greinke and Cocoa who are both rescued mutts.
