Why I did I choose to complete a residency?
This residency is a great way to build upon my previous work experience in independent pharmacy. During the previous 5 years, I had the opportunity to work for Twila Boyd at her pharmacy, Charleston Pharmacy, in South Charleston, Ohio. Through my experiences at Charleston Pharmacy I developed a love for independent pharmacy and the unique atmosphere independents provide.
Why Ohio State?
I decided I wanted a residency within a community pharmacy because I wanted the opportunity to learn how to manage/own a pharmacy. The Ohio State University residency program perked my interest because it has an independent pharmacy residency site, and it also allows its resident to earn a teaching certificate and to conduct research. I believe the experiences I receive from teaching and research will allow me to be a well-rounded practicing pharmacist. Thus far, my experience through The Ohio State University residency program has exceeded my expectations, and I am thankful for all the opportunities and mentorship I have received.
