A little about myself:
I am originally from Derby, Kansas. In my free time I enjoy golf, basketball, biking, and spending time with family and friends. I like all the outdoor activities available in the Marshfield area. I am a huge Jayhawks, Chiefs, and Royals fan and love catching games when I can.
Why did I choose to do a residency?
I pursued residency training to broaden my clinical knowledge and experience, while strengthening time- and project-management skills, leadership skills, and communication skills. I am continuing my residency training as a PGY-2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration resident to further my development as a pharmacy leader.
Why did I choose Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital?
I chose Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital because it offers the learning environment of a large teaching hospital in a friendly, small town setting, and the management team has diverse interests and expertise to provide broad leadership training experiences that will exceptionally prepare me for a future in pharmacy administration.
What rotations will I be doing?
I will be completing administrative rotations in medication safety, quality and regulatory, leadership, finance, supply chain, lean methodology, pharmacy operations, and business plan development. Additionally, I will be completing clinical direct patient care rotations with an emphasis on ambulatory and transitions of care. The staffing component of this residency will focus on distributive and operations of the pharmacy.
It is my goal to practice administrative pharmacy in a management capacity. Current interests include pharmacy practice advancement, population health management, quality and process improvement, and pharmacy operations. I also intend to maintain active involvement with ASHP and state pharmacy organizations.
