Following pharmacy school, she completed a PGY1 with the University of MN at Essentia Health.She practiced in ambulatory care settings and also discovered how pharmacists play an important role in transitions of care, which led her to seek a PGY2 in Pharmacotherapy at St. Luke's Hospital with focus on transitions of care.
