Where did you match?
Randall Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon
What inspired you to go into pharmacy?
I always knew I wanted to go into health care. I was born with a rare congenital birth
defect, which required lots of expert care when I was younger. It took a village to
support me multiple times and I knew I wanted to help be part of that village for
other patients someday. When I started working in retail pharmacy over eight years
ago, I fell in love with the patient care aspect and was so excited for the expanding
pharmacy clinical roles on the horizon.
How did you feel when you found out you had matched?

may not like a particular pharmacy specialty, you may be surprised after experiencing the different clinical roles available during
APPEs. APPEs are a truly unique time where you get to trial potential future career
