Assistant Professor of Pharmacotherapy

Education and Experience:

I received my Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy in Wichita, Kansas. Upon graduating in 2017, I completed a PGY-1 pharmacy practice residency program with an Ashlyn Aguinigaemphasis in ambulatory care at the University of Wyoming Family Medicine Residency Program and Healthcare for the Homeless. I then completed a PGY-2 ambulatory care residency program with an academia focus at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy and Jordan Valley Community Health Center.

Teaching Areas and Interests:

My didactic teaching experiences within my post-graduate training have included large-group lectures and small group facilitation of multiple types of learners, such as pharmacy students, medical residents, and other members of the healthcare team. I also have experience in experiential education with introductory pharmacy students, advanced pharmacy students, as well as medical students. My teaching interests involve management of chronic disease states, especially in cardiology and endocrinology topics, as well as professionalism and practice management topics such as interprofessionalism and collaborative practice.

Professional Activities and Awards:

I am currently an active member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), American Pharmacists Association (APhA), and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). I was also inducted into the Beta Iota chapter of the Phi Lambda Sigma leadership society as a pharmacy student.

Scholarly Interests:

My clinical research interests include chronic disease state management and patient education, specifically in diabetes and cardiology. Having significant experience with underserved patient populations, I am interested in evaluating health literacy and health disparities with relation to chronic disease management as well. Previous scholarship projects have focused on comprehensive diabetes management in an underserved patient population and patient education methods in diabetes management. With regards to the scholarship of teaching in learning, I am interested in active learning strategies and interprofessional education.
