LKS spotlights student and alumni members that are making a difference in their chapters, in their communities, and in the field of pharmacy.
Chapter: Alpha Nu Alumni Chapter
I graduated from Alpha Nu Chapter at the University of Kentucky in 2004, where I had the honor of serving as Chapter President. I then continued my journey as Region Supervisor for one biennium, Grand Treasurer for two biennia and GVPD for three biennia. I have attended every LKS Convention since 2001, except for 2004 when I was beginning residency. I had the honor of chartering four LKS chapters during my tenure as GVPD.
I completed a PGY1 residency at the University of Louisville Hospital in 2005 and am currently a Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist. I have worked as a long-term care consultant pharmacist for over 10 years with PCA Pharmacy in Louisville. I love to travel, read, spend time with my family and work on my Etsy business.
Most memorable LKS experience?
There are so many, but I would have to say the 2002 Convention in Chicago. The whole experience was amazing, from meeting other collegiate members to influential alumni members.
What advice would you give to fellow sisters?
Always go with your gut, because it’s usually correct. If something doesn’t seem right, it’s probably not. Also, pharmacy is a small world.
Why are you a lamb for life?
The friendships that I have developed over the years are crucial for me. I may not get to see these ladies on a regular basis because we all live in different states, but I know they are just a phone call or text away any time I need them. Spending time together at Conventions is so important to me. We are bonded by our LKS sisterhood, the profession and love of pharmacy, and our love and support for one another.
What job would you do if you weren’t a pharmacist?
If I were not a pharmacist I would be a private investigator and/or world traveler.
