Growing up in Rockville, MD, I was just a metro ride from DC. I graduated from Magruder High School where I was very involved with the theater program. Even though I was keener to studying English or theater, my parents persuaded me to study pharmacy. Of course I obliged, but during my pre-professional phase, I was incredibly unsure if pharmacy was the right major for me. It was not until I had my first counseling practice in lab that I knew that that pharmacy is the perfect fit for me. I chose Duquesne because of the quiet campus and the pharmacy's school emphasis on teaching students to provide quality patient care. When I am not studying for my next exam, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading cheesy romance novels, and biking with my two younger brothers.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and horizon-expanding education. A campus of nearly 9,500 graduate and undergraduate students, Duquesne prepares students by having them work alongside faculty to discover and reach their goals. The University's academic programs, community service, and commitment to equity and opportunity in the Pittsburgh region have earned national acclaim.
