I graduated from Jackson High School in Massillon, Ohio in 2013. My whole family has a strong background in medicine and healthcare, so I began working in a pharmacy when I was 17. Right away, I knew it was for me. In pharmacy, we are able to improve a patient's quality of life directly by using our clinical knowledge. Pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare professionals, and I knew I wanted to be at the forefront of patient care. When looking at different schools, Duquesne's curriculum and location of the campus appealed to me most. The versatility of living in a downtown area but still having a safe and comfortable environment to live in was and still is one of my favorite things about Duquesne. In my spare time, I love to travel, play the piano and read.
