Why UR Medicine? I chose the UR Community Pharmacy Residency Program because it offers a variety of experiences in both ambulatory care and specialty pharmacy, which are the two areas I am the most passionate about. More specifically, this program offers the unique opportunity to have multiple specialty rotations that is not typically offered in other PGY1 programs. With this residency program being part of a large academic medical center, I knew I would have the opportunities to build a strong clinical foundation and have experiences with diverse patient populations. Additionally, I knew I wanted to be part of a program where the RPD and preceptors were supportive and invested in my growth, both professionally and personally.
What is your favorite thing about living in Rochester so far or something you are looking forward to trying in Rochester? With being from Wisconsin and growing up in a rural area, I appreciate how I can live in a quiet suburb and drive 15 minutes to the city. I have really enjoyed the food in Rochester so far and you never run out of options here! There are so many outdoor activities ranging from trails, lakes, and farmers’ markets so there is always something to do.
Personal interests/fun facts: Outside of work, I am almost always spending time with my two dogs, Bentley and Chewy. In my free time at home, I’m usually crafting new projects with my Cricut or cooking Vietnamese food! I enjoy biking with my partner on the trails near my apartment and hope to bike along the Erie Canal in the future.
