VSHP Membership Spotlight
What initially motivated you to join VSHP?
As a career switcher, I did not know much about hospital pharmacy. I joined VSHP to gain more insight into hospital pharmacy and to network with other like-minded professionals.
What school are you attending and what year?
I am a 3rd year student at VCU School of Pharmacy.
Do you currently work in a pharmacy and if so what practice setting?
Currently, I work at Virginia Department of Health (VDH) helping to distribute covid vaccines to clinics throughout the state. Recently, we have added monkeypox vaccine to our inventory of vaccines to ship throughout the state.
What advice would you give to a P1 student or someone interested in pharmacy school?
Pharmacy is a constantly evolving field. Keep an open mind and try to explore and get involved in many experiences as possible. Your classmates and professors will someday be your future colleagues so treat them with the professional courtesy that you would like to be treated with.
Do you have any special interests or hobbies outside of work?
I love to travel and explore nature.
What is your favorite place to vacation?
I had a wonderful experience in Lisbon, Portugal! Definitely worth a revisit. I thought Portugal would be similar to Spain, but they are vastly different and each place has something unique to offer. However, Lisbon is definitely a jewel and lovely place to holiday.
