UConn School of Pharmacy, Class of 2011
As a native of Enfield and lifelong Connecticut resident, I graduated from UConn in 2002 with a B.S. in Psychology. I worked for three years in retail management before deciding that I needed a more fulfilling career where I could affect people’s lives. I wanted a career that is challenging, where every day is different, and where I will always learn something new. In 2005, I returned to UConn as a pharmacy student. As soon as I did, I knew it was the best decision I have ever made.
My reasons for wanting to join the UST are the very same reasons why I wanted to become a pharmacist. I want to start using my knowledge to make a difference now. There are people in need of the services we can provide, and I am eager to get involved and practice what we preach. UST provides stimulating educational activities along with opportunities to provide care to the patients who need it most, the underserved. The program exemplifies what all health care practitioners should strive to do. I believe I can contribute to the program with my knowledge, excellent people skills, and high motivation.
