About Me

As assistant professor at the Washington State University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, I split my time teaching and a practice site at Kootenai Hospital. I teach Point of Care and Clinical Services and Pharmacy Management. When I am not teaching or practicing pharmacy, my research focuses on public health efforts for pharmacy and research to understand preventative and treatment interventions for substance use disorder.

In my spare time I like to…

I love to hike, to run (mostly long distances) and to hang out with my dog and husband!

Why WSU?

I appreciate the connected network within WSU and the support that comes with that network.
