My Manchester Story

How did you become interested in pharmacy and, specifically, Manchester’s program?

I grew up in a family of health care providers so, it felt natural to follow that career path. I landed on pharmacy after shadowing inpatient pharmacists in high school and learning about their role on the healthcare team. I was most interested by the evolution of pharmacy and how it continues to grow. I started at Manchester as an undergraduate student and was drawn in by the community and small school atmosphere. I stayed for the people, the opportunity to grow and be my best self, and the support Manchester has provided and continues to provide me! 

Do you know what area of pharmacy you would like to work in?

My long-term career goal is to become an acute care pharmacy specialist. I plan to pursue residency post grad and hopefully specialize in either critical care or internal medicine.

What advice do you have for incoming pharmacy students?

Building a community of classmates and mentors can make a huge difference. Pharmacy school can be tough so having friends to lean on and mentors to guide you can help in stressful times. Getting involved in student organizations is one of the easiest ways to build community as well as help you grow as a professional.

What do you do in your spare time? 

I like to spend time outside when I can, I’m from Northwest Indiana so I enjoy visits back home to hike in the dunes and visit Lake Michigan. I also enjoy exploring Fort Wayne. I love trying new places downtown, going to farmer’s markets, and exploring the trails and parks. I also love collecting hobbies including reading, baking, and collecting vinyl.
