About Me

I was raised just north of Seattle in Shoreline, Washington and became interested in pharmacy while studying cellular biology and chemistry during my undergrad at Western Washington University. After graduation and a gap year, I attended Washington State University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences where I obtained my Doctor of Pharmacy Degree. I then completed a PGY1 residency at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, followed by a PGY2 in psychiatric pharmacy at Avera Behavioral Health Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Currently, I split my time between Washington State University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, Washington, practicing as an inpatient psychiatric clinical pharmacist, and precepting fourth-year Doctor of Pharmacy students for a psychiatric elective rotation. In the classroom, I guest lecture in pharmacotherapy and kinetics, primarily on mental health topics. My clinical interests include underserved care, emergency and inpatient psychiatry, substance use disorders, and expanding psychiatric pharmacy in the Pacific Northwest.

In my spare time I like to…

I like to spend time outdoors, do-it-yourself home projects, playing with my dog, and reconnecting with family and friends since relocating to the Pacific Northwest.

Why WSU?

WSU CPPS provided the training and skills to achieve my academic goals, and thereafter be successful in becoming a specialized pharmacist. Opportunities I had as a fourth-year student pharmacist on rotation helped determine what I was passionate about, and how I wanted to apply my training as a pharmacist. My goal as faculty at WSU is to one day have that level of impact on a future Coug pharmacist. My colleagues at WSU inspire me to continually develop as an educator, clinician, and mentor.
