  • Year/program: Third year (almost fourth-year) pharmacy student

What is your best memory from your time at UNMC?

I will always cherish the friendships I have made with my fellow classmates. My class is always there to help one another out, both inside and outside the classroom, especially the trips we have taken together. We have grown close the past three years and it will be sad to embark on rotations without them.

Our four brand values are leadership, commitment to excellence, working together and being a trusted resource. Pick one and tell us a time you witnessed it embodied at UNMC.

Some of the pharmacy curriculum requires us to work with patients, and the mentoring our professors provide with these patients is inspiring. They demonstrate leadership and professionalism on a daily basis as part of the health care team. Professors respect, value, and trust student input in making decisions that impact patients. I have always felt comfortable approaching my instructors with my questions as I know they are not only medication specialists but also compassionate healthcare providers. To know that I am helping to provide exceptional patient care with nationally-renowned pharmacists reinforces all four of UNMC's brand values.

List three things people may not know about you.

  • I have studied abroad in three different countries: France, Italy and Belize.
  • Most of my family attended the same undergraduate institution.
  • I work at The Nebraska Medical Center in the inpatient pharmacy department.
