I grew up about an hour north of Pittsburgh in the small town of Portersville, Pennsylvania. After graduating Slippery Rock Area High School, I chose to attend Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy for the Doctorate of Pharmacy program. I loved the friendly, personal environment that Duquesne offered, so I knew it was the school for me. I selected to major in pharmacy because I have a passion for helping people and a strong interest in science and medicine. Currently, I am involved in many organizations on campus as well as my internship at the Medicine Shoppe in New Castle, Pennsylvania. I spend my free time hanging out with my family, traveling, and exploring Pittsburgh.
