University of Waterloo, 3rd Year
Education (Prior to pharmacy school): I have a Bachelor in Medical Sciences from Western University (2014).
Hobbies & Interests: I have a large extended family that lives all over the world, so I love travelling in Europe and Asia. I’ve also started embarrassing the outdoors since starting pharmacy school. I enjoy exploring our beautiful country by biking along waterfronts and hiking in National Parks. I’m also acquiring some “basic” survival skills, so I’m learning to cook new dishes during my spare time!
- Our first annual report was a success last year! I plan to continue this initiative and prepare a 2015-2016 annual report that can be viewed by all CAPSI members prior to the annual general meeting at PDW 2017. This will help our members understand what the National Executive is doing for them, and increase our transparency to Canadian pharmacy students and interns.
- Provide explanations and historical perspectives on current CAPSI practices, as this is the primary role of the Past President.
- Last year we implemented CAPSI’s official turnover documents. This year I want to work towards improving these turnover documents for council and for PDWs. Continuity within the organization helps ease transition from year to year.
I’m entering the final leg of my journey in pharmacy school. I look forward to starting my clinical rotations as I prepare to enter the working world. I plan to apply for residency programs within the province of Ontario for continuing education will be a primary focus when I become a pharmacist. I also look forward to promoting our expanded scope of practice further as a pharmacy student and will continue to advocate for the profession of pharmacy in the future.
