"You know how parents always want their children to do better than they did…and then they end up following in their parents' footsteps? I took that phrase literally. My mother is a pharmacy technician (and many of my relatives are nurses). I was originally an architecture major, but changed my mind halfway through college – I realized I wanted a more science based career."
"I found TCOP by accident while scrolling through application dates! My friends also recommended the school and I wanted to experience living in NY."
Interesting past work

"I'd love to do residency in a psychiatric pharmacy. Or a research-based fellowship. I also want to learn more about genomics (drugs made based on our DNA), which Dr. Loewy spoke about during orientation…The more experience the better."
"I've been told I do the best Ron White impressions."
