Pharmacy-Driven Optimization of Medication Management and Communication at Hospital Discharge
I will be developing collaborative policies to allow pharmacists to modify certain prescriptions during discharge medication reconciliation and standardizing tools and procedures for the communication of patients’ warfarin history and plan to outpatient providers at discharge. This is with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of medication management at hospital discharge.
Why did you choose to pursue a residency?
I chose to pursue a residency to further develop my clinical skills and explore my professional interests. While I felt that my fourth year rotations provided me with a sufficient foundation to be a pharmacist, I knew I needed at least one additional year to challenge myself and apply my clinical knowledge with the guidance of skilled preceptors. I feel that after completing a residency I will be better prepared to be an effective clinical pharmacist as I pursue a career at an academic medical center.
What attracted you to Froedtert’s pharmacy residency program?
In addition to the last residency class size, I was attracted to Froedtert’s pharmacy residency program for many reasons. First, I was drawn to Froedtert’s integrated staffing model, where decentral pharmacist are responsible for both clinical and distributive functions for all of their patients. This provides the resident with a well-rounded staffing experience. Second, Froedtert offers a wide variety of rotations for a practice broad experience. Finally, the pharmacy department’s commitment leadership and innovation in the pharmacy profession allows residents to be involved many unique pharmacy initiatives and leadership opportunities.

What's your favorite thing to do in Milwaukee?
There are many choices - I can’t just choose one! The summer season is great to enjoy all the festivals around Milwaukee, boating on the lakes in the area, and going to Brewers games. During the colder months, I like to try the variety of restaurants downtown and try the different brewery tours throughout the Milwaukee area.
