U of Saskatchewan Jr. Representative

Danielle Shymanski

University of Saskatchewan, 2nd Year

Education (Prior to pharmacy school): I completed two years of undergraduate degree courses in the Science Department at the University of Winnipeg prior to entering the Pharmacy program at the University of Saskatchewan.

Hobbies & Interests: I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, cooking, playing basketball and travelling the world.

Position Goals:

  1. Encourage first year students to be involved with CAPSI, and make sure that they are fully aware of their benefits as members.
  2. Elevate CAPSI’s presence within the community, allowing CAPSI members to spread awareness about the expanded roles of pharmacy practice to other health care professionals and the general public.
  3. Advocate for students and promote health awareness and the importance of having a good school-life balance, and eventually work-life balanced lifestyle once we enter the profession of Pharmacy.

Career Goals:

I am currently in my second year of the Pharmacy program and I hope to learn as much as I can in these next three years in the classroom as well through college and community involvement. I hope to experience the different fields within Pharmacy, especially through the new expanding scope of practice. I hope to enter practice as a well experienced pharmacist who loves what she does!
