Education: Midwestern University
My focus throughout my life and career has always been health and bridging the gap that exists in healthcare. Prevention, as well as treatment, play vital roles in our wellbeing. I believe prevention is the key to reducing health inequality in our community. I knew I found my calling in pharmacy when I witnessed the powerful and life changing effects medication could have on people. Mountain Park’s integrated care model and the relationships that are built with patients are truly inspiring. I believe that a pharmacist is an essential component of this healthcare model, and being able to build and add to these relationships is why I came to Mountain Park. I moved to Phoenix several years ago from a smaller community in Iowa, where it felt as if everyone knew each other. That same sense of community and familiarity drew me to Mountain Park.
My husband and I have four children, one of whom is a toddler, and keeps us very active. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends and going home to Iowa as often as possible. I don’t really have much free time, but when I do I like to shop, read and spend time in my backyard.
