My teaching responsibilities include didactic and case-based learning surrounding critical care and toxicology topics. I also coordinate the code blue simulation interprofessional education activity held at Texas Christian University. In terms of experiential education, I precept pharmacy students in their critical care rotations at my practice site, Medical City Fort Worth.
Professional Activities & Awards:
I am a member of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), Phi Lambda Sigma and the Rho Chi Society. Within ACCP, I am actively involved in the Critical Care and Perioperative Care PRN.
My clinical interest is critical care, specifically care within the medical intensive care unit. I am interested in developing processes that improve patient outcomes through quality and performance improvement projects. My previous research projects have involved the implementation of a delirium management protocol, studying the effects of reflex urine studies on antimicrobial use and healthcare cost, and identifying the utility of intrawound vancomycin in decreasing surgical site infections. I am also particularly interested in studying the development of both clinical and soft skills among pharmacy students.
