I am actively involved with URI College of Pharmacy! I am the Pharmacy Resident Academic Mentor (RAM) and serve as an academic resource for first-year PharmD and BSPS students. I am also a university tour guide and a URI 101 mentor. In addition, I am the vice president of American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, director of professional development for Industry Pharmacists Organization, the social media/recruitment chair for Diversity Representation in Pharmacy, and a member of Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS) and student society of health system pharmacists (SSHP). Outside of the College of Pharmacy, I am a contributing writer for The Good 5 Cent Cigar and a member of Women in STEM.

This past summer, I worked at Pfizer as a Global Labeling Lead Intern in regulatory affairs. This opportunity has helped me expand my network and develop experience working in the pharmaceutical industry. I am very involved in the URI community and hope to continue being a mentor by helping prospective students find their home at URI.
