I am a PY1 pharmacy student from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. I chose to study pharmacy because I wanted to enter into a profession that combined my interests of medical science with helping others. From the moment I stepped foot on Duquesne's campus, I fell in love with its welcoming atmosphere, beautiful landscape, and friendliness of everyone I encountered. I knew its Mylan School of Pharmacy was highly acclaimed, and was very impressed with what it had to offer. Currently, I am involved in many pharmacy organizations, including APhA-ASP, PPA, and ACCP. I am a co-chair on the service committee of Lambda Kappa Sigma, a professional pharmacy fraternity. I am also secretary for Duquesne's club of the international service organization Circle K, the collegiate chapter of Kiwanis International, and a member of IHS and ODK. In my spare time I enjoy skiing and reading.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. Duquesne, a campus of nearly 9,500 graduate and undergraduate students, has been nationally recognized for its academic programs, community service and commitment to sustainability.
