Where did you complete your undergraduate studies and what was your major/degree?”

What is your favorite part of Campbell University CPHS?
I grew up in a small town, so I was drawn to the tight-knit community at Campbell. On the drive home from campus, I told my mom, “I think I found a place I can call home,” and I have for the past eight years. Campbell faculty and staff take the time to get to know you and genuinely want you to succeed– they constantly challenge you to achieve more.
What experiences helped get you where you are today?
I believe it is important to be a well-rounded student and professional and this can be achieved by involvement in your local community. Service and volunteerism are very important to me, I served at both the free community health clinic offered by Campbell University and in the Redemption Hill Church Kids Residency. The best way to help patients is to know where they come from, know their story, and help improve their story.
What would you recommend to those interested in becoming a successful clinical pharmacist?
Open-mindedness: Take chances and pursue all opportunities whether it be shadowing for a day or research. Keep your mind open to different career paths, the pharmacy profession is exciting and there is so much you can do. Additionally, always, always, always keep your faith in the Lord. He is so faithful to us through it all!
