Why did you choose Pharmacy as profession?
I chose pharmacy because I wanted to have a better understanding of medicine, how it worked, why it worked, and what ways I could make it better.
Why do you volunteer for CCPMRC?
I joined the Capitol City Pharmacy Medical Reserve Corps at the beginning of this school year. As an organization, CCPMRC stood out to me. When Ryan Frazier, Chief of Community Resilience, talked about triaging, I realized it was a skill that I wanted to learn. Wherever I end up in life, being able to quickly assess and reassess situations in order to complete large complicated task will be highly beneficial to me and I believe that being a member of CCPMRC will allow me to obtain this skill set.
What activities have you participated in recently?
Last month, I had to opportunity participate in an active shooter exercise hosted by George Washington University MRC, DC DOH, US Park Police, Children's National MRC, DC HEPRA, and many other health agencies. It was fascinating to see how first responders and volunteers prepare for situations that could result in mass casualties.
What do you like to do in your free-time?
In my free time I enjoy reading, volunteering with children, and talking to my younger sister.
