Professional Interests:
Critical Care

Residency Research Project:
Effect of pseudoephedrine on the weaning of IV vasopressors and length of stay in the Intensive Care Unit


What attracted you to the SJHMC Residency program?
When considering PGY-1 residency programs I sought out one that would offer a variety of unique experiences as well as one that would prepare me for future opportunities within critical care. As a 600-bed academic medical center, St. Joe’s offers a wide range of acute care experiences with dedicated preceptors to provide the skills and mentorship necessary to become a well-rounded clinical pharmacist. In addition to the strong core rotations, the numerous and challenging elective rotations allow for one to tailor the residency to their own interests and career goals. This combined with the many teaching opportunities, health-system projects, and longitudinal experiences are all reasons that led me to St. Joe’s.

Undergrad Education:
Gonzaga University 

Professional Interest: Oncology

Residency Project: Rates of Antibiotic de-escalation in patients with febrile neutropenia and positive cultures

What attracted you to the SJHMC Residency program?
I chose St. Joe’s as my top residency choice due to the wide variety of rotational opportunities they have. They are known for their critical care, trauma services, and robust emergency department but they also offer unique rotations in solid organ transplant, inpatient/outpatient oncology, nephrology, etc. In addition to their extensive rotation schedule, there were many opportunities for teaching experience and interdisciplinary work. Being an academic hospital, there is a strong pharmacy presence among the other healthcare providers which allows for great learning opportunities. St. Joe’s also has strong affiliations with Barrow Neurological Institute and University of Arizona that helps broaden its scope within the state. Due to all of these reasons, and the strong clinical staff, I felt St. Joe’s offered me the best opportunity to grow as a clinical pharmacist.
