During my residency, I received a teaching certificate from West Virginia University Medicine, served as an adjunct professor, and completed a 5-week rotation in academia. While at the University of Utah Health, I coordinated the geriatrics therapeutics module and participated regularly in OSCEs and recitations. My experiences include didactic and small group lectures including team-based-learning formats, laboratory facilitations and recitations, and mentorship of P4 pharmacy students. Currently, I am teaching in the Respiratory/GI IPT, the Renal IPT, and Endocrine IPT courses. I am passionate about pharmacy education and look forward to the many opportunities available at the UNT System College of Pharmacy.

My primary interest is geriatric medicine, and I hope to expand and collaborate with providers on research endeavors in this particular area. My passion for pharmacy education also drives my interest in team-based learning and innovative technology in the classroom.
