Biographical Sketch

After completing my Pharm.D. degree in 2004, I joined the faculty at ULM in August of 2005. My first position in the College of Pharmacy was in the Office of Experiential Education as the Coordinator of the Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience program. I then transitioned into a clinical position where my practice site involved anticoagulation management, medication therapy management (MTM), smoking cessation, and diabetes. I now serve as the Director of Professional Affairs within the Office of Student and Professional Affairs.
