Biographical Sketch

I currently work in an HIV/AIDS clinic that treats patients of all ages, most of whom struggle daily with polypharmacy. I run a medication therapy management service for my clinic where I help patients manage multiple medications as well as chronic disease states such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, HIV/AIDS, thyroid disorders, and asthma/COPD. I published an article in 2015 regarding pediatric polypharmacy sparked by my growing interest this area of pharmaceutical care. I am passionate about my local community, participating in many health screenings, awareness walks, and pediatric summer camps geared toward special disease states. I have collaborated with researchers outside of my institution in the past and I am confident in my communication and collaboration skills. I have been working with Dr. Paul Bakaki on several projects regarding pediatric polypharmacy since 2016. The research is currently in progress; however, we hope to present the pilot data of our research this year. I am also interested in research regarding outpatient antimicrobial stewardship, and transitions of care for HIV/AIDS patents, and PREP stewardship.
