Admissions Student Ambassador
Touro College of Pharmacy
Welcome to Touro College of Pharmacy! The TCOP family and I are very excited to meet you as you embark upon your journey into the field of pharmacy with us.
I was born and raised in a small town in rural Guyana then moved to New York when I turned 18 years old. I have an AS in chemistry from the University of Guyana and a BSc in biology from Long Island University Brooklyn. I first discovered my passion for the field of pharmacy while working as a Pharmacy Technician Trainee at CVS Pharmacy. Since then, I have been a certified pharmacy technician for approximately 7 years in a variety of pharmacy settings, such as long-term care, specialty as well as hospital pharmacy at Cohen Children's Medical Center. My primary area of interest in the field is clinical pharmacy centered around pediatric specialization.
Some of the activities I enjoy during my downtime are weightlifting and restoring vintage furniture. Maintaining a healthy balance between these activities and my academic life has given me a chance to enjoy the journey through pharmacy school thus far.
I look forward to seeing you on campus. If you have any questions, concerns or need suggestions on how to navigate student life at TCOP, please feel free to contact me.
