Born and raised in Detroit, I practiced as a hospital and home infusion pharmacist before going back to complete a residency in Pharmacy Practice in 2001. I became a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS) in 2006, and since then I have worked as both an Internal Medicine Specialist and an Ambulatory Care Specialist/Clinical Pharmacy Manager with two large healthcare systems in Detroit. I have served as a clinical rotation preceptor for Wayne State University and The University of Michigan, as well as a part-time Clinical Assistant Professor for the University of Florida WPPD nontraditional Pharm. D. program.
I joined the full-time faculty of Midwestern University in Fall 2008 and have an advanced pharmacy practice clinical rotation site in ambulatory care at Phoenix Baptist Family Medicine Center (FMC) Clinic, with a focus on diabetes education. I precept pharmacy students as well as interact with the family medicine residents to help improve the care of diabetes patients.
