Advisor: Salisa Westrick, Ph.D.
I graduated from the University of California, San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2012 with my PharmD degree. I then worked as a pharmacist for Rite Aid Pharmacy for three years, where I became involved in Medication Therapy Management (MTM) and numerous community outreach events, especially with the senior population. This interest in MTM and geriatric pharmacy, as well as the desire to pursue more research in the field, prompted me to return to school, and I am now pursuing a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences with an emphasis in Health Outcomes Research and Policy at the Harrison School of Pharmacy.
My major advisor is Salisa Westrick, PhD, and my current research interests include opioid and substance abuse prevention processes in community pharmacies, especially using implementation science approaches and mixed methods. I am also interested in choice models, including discrete choice and conjoint analysis methods. My long-term goal is to work in academia, both teaching and conducting research.
