Practice Areas of Interest: Ambulatory care, internal medicine, emergency medicine
Interests Outside of Pharmacy: I like to spend my time outside of the pharmacy going to Pilates, hiking, or enjoying large bodies of water (pool/lake/ocean- all of the above). Napping is nice, too.

“I am excited about the exceptional learning opportunities and wide array of clinical pharmacy practice experiences that the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances PGY1 program offers. The diverse pharmacotherapy rotations and highly dedicated preceptors at this program will provide me with the clinical knowledge and expertise I need to pursue a PGY2 pharmacy practice residency or a career as a skilled clinical pharmacist.

Interests Outside of Pharmacy: When not practicing pharmacy, I enjoy spending time with my two dachshunds, having Harry Potter marathons, and of course, watching Aggie football (don’t let my pharmacy school of choice confuse you).

“I am thrilled to be a PGY-1 in the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances residency program. The integration of pharmacists into patient care and the collaboration of the pharmacy team is what drew me to this program.
