NYCSHP LIU Student Liaison 2022 – 2023
PharmD Candidate 2024

What pharmacy school do you currently attend and where are you currently working?

I am a pharmacy student at Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy at Long Island University. I’m expected to graduate in the year 2024! I worked as a pharmacy technician at Publix Pharmacy for 11 years before pharmacy school. Currently, I work as a pharmacy intern at The Brooklyn Hospital Center.

How did you find out about NYCSHP and why did you decide to join?

I discovered NYCSHP last year during a club fair at my university. It was my first year on campus and I read NYCSHP’s mission statement and loved the representation of advancing pharmacy in healthcare!

What are your career goals and how has joining NYCSHP helped you with those goals?

My career goals include pursuing post-graduate residency training and eventually becoming a clinical pharmacist. Being involved with NYCSHP inspired me to advocate for my patient’s care and further understand how essential a pharmacist’s role is on a patient’s care team.

What’s a memorable or defining moment for you as a pharmacy student?

During my community IPPE rotation, I assisted an elderly woman in finding a manufacturer coupon for an expensive medication for her ill husband. She was so grateful for my time and patience to come back the next day with flowers. Being able to help provide access to medications at a lower drug cost allowed me to make a positive impact on someone’s life.
