I work as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy and have served as the LKS Women’s Health Issue Committee Chair since 2012. I have attended Convention in Scranton, Naples, Philadelphia and Las Vegas. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family and friends, traveling, eating at new restaurants.
 
Most memorable LKS experience? 
 
I have so many! I was most proud to receive the LKS Distinguished Young Pharmacist Award in 2014.
 
Advice to other members? 
 
Show initiative, never give up, be enthusiastic and always smile!
 
Why are you a lamb for life? 
 
I love our network! It’s awesome to attend local and national meetings and automatically have a talking point with fellow LKS members. 
 
What job would you do if you weren’t a pharmacist? 
 
A wedding planner! Similar to pharmacists, a lot of attention is given to details.
