Biographical Sketch

I currently work in an HIV/AIDS clinic that treats patients of all ages, most of whom struggle daily with polypharmacy. I also work daily with pediatric patients and their parents who struggle to manage multiple medications. I run a medication therapy management service for my clinic where I help patients manage multiple medications as well as chronic disease states. I published an article in 2015 regarding pediatric polypharmacy sparked by my growing interest this area of pharmaceutical care. I am passionate about chronic disease state management including the management of hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and women's health issues. 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.

Ambulatory care pharmacy practice is the provision of integrated, accessible health care services by pharmacists who are accountable for addressing medication needs, developing sustained partnerships with patients, and practicing in the context of family and community. This is accomplished through direct patient care and medication management for ambulatory patients, long-term relationships, coordination of care, patient advocacy, wellness and health promotion, triage and referral, and patient education and self management. The ambulatory care pharmacists may work in both an institutional and community-based clinic involved in direct care of a diverse patient population.
