I also completed a Clinical Teaching Certificate program at the University of South Carolina School of Pharmacy. My PGY2 residency training focused primarily on managing diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, anticoagulation, and heart failure in a diverse underserved population. I joined the HSC College of Pharmacy upon completion of my PGY2 training, and I am a Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist (BCACP).
