I am from North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, which is about 20 miles east of Duquesne. I graduated from Norwin High School in 2013. While in high school I participated in multiple clubs and organizations, as well as being a member on my high school bowling team. I chose Duquesne to study Pharmacy because it is an extremely well respected program with fantastic professors and opportunities. I enjoyed the campus because it is not far from home, so I am still able to commute to school. The campus was perfect in both size and setting for me as well. I wanted to study pharmacy because I enjoy science and want to help others. Every pharmacist I have ever encountered was always so kind, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. At school I am a member of PSHP and APhA-ASP. Outside of school, I still am on a bowling league and have an internship at Giant Eagle Pharmacy.
