Why did you choose to pursue a PGY2 pediatric residency? My experience on the pediatric hematology and oncology rotation as a PGY1 resident was a defining moment for me to advance my training in pediatrics. The resilience and positivity I saw in each patient truly inspired me to provide the best possible care for patients and become an advocate for children. I aim to be a positive light when children may be facing the toughest moments in their life.

What drew you to the pharmacy residency program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital? Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital offers a wide breadth of rotations and longitudinal experiences that fit my interests and goals. During my interview, the preceptors I met were passionate about their specialty and teaching residents. Most importantly, it was highly encouraged to have fun while learning to become a clinical specialist.

Why did you choose to pursue a PGY2 pediatric residency? I have had the dream of being a pediatric pharmacist even prior to starting pharmacy school! I wanted to be able to make a difference in the lives of children and their families on a daily basis. The unique opportunities pediatric pharmacy offers through teaching to all ages and levels of education and the all-around teamwork attitude in a children's hospital made it easy for me to know that is where I wanted to practice.

What drew you to the pharmacy residency program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital? When I interviewed at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, I immediately knew I wanted to train and practice there. The warmth and excitement all the preceptors brought in addition to the high acuity of patients that I knew I would see really drew me to the program. I could tell that the pharmacists were valued by their teams and they had an integrated model even within the department that again brings a teamwork culture that I wanted to work in.
