I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from East Tennessee State University. I double majored in Biology and Chemistry with a minor in humanities. While working on my Bachelor’s degree, I started a part time job as a pharmacy technician at Bristol Regional Hospital now known as Ballad Health. I thoroughly enjoyed my position, and the pharmacists taught me everything they knew about pharmacy. My passion grew during this time for pharmacy and this inspired me to apply to pharmacy school in 2015. I obtained admission at the Appalachian College of Pharmacy and I enjoyed pharmacy school in its entirety. I enjoyed learning as much as I could to make an excellent pharmacist for my patients and served as a tutor for the college. I recently graduated from the Appalachian College of Pharmacy in May of 2018 with my doctorate degree in pharmacy. I graduated in the top 10 percent of my class and I am a member of the Rho Chi honor society.
My professional interest is in ambulatory care and monitoring chronic disease states such as diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and anticoagulation. As a current resident of ACP’s PGY-1 community residency program, my primary focus will be helping to establish the ambulatory care clinic with Ben Price, Pharm D at TigeRx Pharmacy in Honaker, Virginia. I will also be helping to expand Medication Therapy Management along with giving and educating patients on immunizations.
I recently got married April 1st. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, serving in our church, exercising, and boating at the lake with my family. Lastly, I became an aunt for the first time last September. Carson is a bundle of joy, and I greatly enjoy spending time with him.
