Area of interest: Ambulatory care, geriatrics, academia
Research Project: Impact of weight loss outcomes on patients prescribed Saxenda based on managing provider
Why Novant: I was drawn to Novant Health because of the emphasis on primary care and outpatient management. There are pharmacists embedded in numerous clinics throughout the Winston-Salem area with a variety of specialties that residents are able to experience during the year. Through North Carolina’s Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner designation, residency preceptors at Novant are permitted a significant amount of autonomy to manage patients’ chronic disease states, which allows me to learn how to practice at the top of my license. Through the relationship with various schools of pharmacy in the area, I will also be able to explore my interest in academia and interact with pharmacy students. Additionally, as part of a larger health system, Novant Health offers the opportunity to learn with residents in a number of pharmacy settings. I am excited to begin the next step in my pharmacy career by developing the skills necessary to provide excellent patient care at Novant.
One thing you like to do in Winstom Salem: I have enjoyed exploring the various restaurants and bakeries.

Why Novant: The main reasons that I chose Novant Health include the strong focus in ambulatory care, the flexibility in constructing your residency experience, and the welcoming environment, which was apparent from the day that I first interviewed. As a large healthcare organization, Novant has numerous primary care clinics which provide residents with opportunities to interact with diverse patient populations throughout the year. In addition, the wide variety of rotation experiences and high level of support from the Novant team allows residents to personalize the residency and helps them accomplish their goals. Another reason that I chose Novant is because of the staffing component, which provides a unique opportunity to learn more about specialty medications and is completed longitudinally throughout the year. I look forward to this upcoming year at Novant Health and continuing to grow personally and professionally as an ambulatory care pharmacist!
One thing you like to do in Winston-Salem: I really enjoy the active downtown environment, which includes a variety of coffee shops, restaurants, parks, and workout classes!
