Hometown: Boca Raton, FL
Pharmacy School: University of Florida
PGY-1 Program: Michigan Medicine
Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? What initially drew me to Michigan was the combined Investigational Drugs & Research Pharmacy Residency which provides an opportunity to establish a strong clinical/operational foundation during the PGY-1 year and then transition seamlessly into working with the Research Pharmacy team during the PGY-2 year. What sold me on the program were the amazing people here who push you to be the best version of yourself and are genuinely invested in your growth & success as a new practitioner! Also, Ann Arbor is a great place to live!
