    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:

    1. Be dedicated to Leadership
    2. Sincerely care about your people
    3. Never be satisfied with the status quo
    4. 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 residency because I am passionate about the impact of the health-system pharmacist in optimizing patient care. As a new pharmacist, I could not imagine beginning my pharmacy career without this opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and experiences to allow me to practice at the top of my license.

     “Why Ohio State?”

    I chose to complete the PGY1/2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership residency program at The Ohio State University due to its legacy as a leader in health-system administration, emphasis on strong clinical development, and opportunities in innovation and research. Choosing Ohio State also means choosing to be a part of a community that is bigger than yourself. Not only is Columbus is an incredible place to live, but it is filled with incredibly kind people. After completing my undergraduate and pharmacy school at The Ohio State University, I could not imagine a better place to complete my residency training. Go bucks!
