Why was completing a residency at Ohio State beneficial to your career?
Without question, the OSU-HSPA residency program has been critically influential in my career. Specifically, my current success is the product of those mentors, many of which are associated with the residency program, who have been immensely impactful in my life. And so, in my current role as Associate Director of the Purdue University College of Pharmacy Center for Medication Safety Advancement and Clinical Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, I strive to mentor others in their own professional journey. The OSU-HSPA program in conjunction with the Latiolais Leadership Program (LLP) gave me the mentorship, training, and experience to be a leader of pharmacy no matter the career; more than just a program designed to train the next pharmacy operations manager, the skills, opportunities, and mentors throughout my residency helped me maximize my own interests and passions. To date, this has culminated in my current non-traditional role as I lead a team of people, manage strategic initiatives, form global partnerships, and educate others as an expert in medication safety. As a professional, I do my very best to live and work by the “Latiolais Success Characteristics” as published in the September 2013 Hospital Pharmacy Director’s Forum article:
- Be dedicated to Leadership
- Sincerely care about your people
- Never be satisfied with the status quo
- Implement your vision
In everything I do, I hope to excel in these tenets, making my colleagues, my patients, my customers, my family, and my fellow alumni of this renowned program proud.

- Why did I choose to complete a residency?I chose to complete a pharmacy residency due to my passion for being a lifelong learner and drive to surround myself with an atmosphere that is entirely structured around strengthening my personal and professional development. As a pharmacy resident, I knew that I would have the opportunity to participate in a variety of different learning experiences that would contribute to my “tool belt” of knowledge that would allow me to thrive in any role following graduation.
- Why OSU?I chose to complete a residency at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for many reasons, but a few key contributors to this decision include the welcoming atmosphere, the drive for success, the legacy associated with this success, and the program’s intentional structure fostered to optimize my learning experience. As a resident here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I am surrounded by preceptors dedicated to my personal and professional growth and am supported by years of Buckeye Alumni to lean on for support and guidance. I am truly so honored and proud to be a Buckeye!
