About Me

I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and am a graduate of the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Shortly after graduating from pharmacy school I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and have since focused my clinical and research activities on the treatment of diabetes and its complications.

I serve as the instructor of record (IOR) for Pharmacotherapy II and the Advanced Diabetes Management elective. I frequently speak at national diabetes meetings on topics related to diabetes management and have held several leadership roles with organizations such as the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the Rho Chi National Honors Society. Several days per month I also work as a clinical pharmacist at Providence VNA Home Health.

In my spare time I like to…

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, and fishing.

Why WSU?

As a graduate of the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences I was drawn to working at WSU so that I could engage in a variety of professional activities including teaching, clinical work, professional service and research.
