I grew up in Bel Air, Maryland, 30 miles east of Baltimore. After graduating from C. Milton Wright High School, I attended Duquesne University in the fall of 2011 in the pre-pharmacy program. I was born in Western Pennsylvania and still have family that live in the area, so that greatly influenced my decision to want to come back for my college education. I entered the Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy in the fall of 2013. I am currently in my PY3 year, and am taking coursework to complete a concentration in Acute Care. I chose to study pharmacy because I always wanted to enter a health care profession, and felt that pharmacy appropriately blended together my biology, chemistry, and math interests I had developed, especially in high school. In addition, I wanted a career that allowed me to help others, and Duquesne University is known for being a school that stresses community outreach and assisting those in need throughout the city of Pittsburgh. In fact, The Princeton Review even called Duquesne, "cosmopolitan yet caring." In addition to school, I also intern at the inpatient pharmacy in the Veteran's Affairs Pittsburgh Healthcare System, located in Oakland. Outside of school and work, I enjoy attending sporting events for the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins, hiking, kayaking, and spending time with family.
