Areas of Expertise: I am learning and investigating where my niche will be in academic pharmacy. I was involved in academic pharmacy for about 7 years before deciding to go back to graduate school in pursuit of my PhD with a specific focus in the scholarship of teaching and learning. Some of my interests include team-based learning, leadership development, curricular quality improvement, studying students’ strengths and talents, assessment, and evaluation.

Areas of expertise in education related innovation and scholarship: My areas of interest and expertise are still growing, but I am drawn to the learning and growth that occur during periods of transition. For pharmacy students this may be as they transition from undergraduate course work to graduate pharmacy education, as they transition from didactic curriculum to experiential education, or as they transition from student to practitioner. This transitional period also applies to other health professional students, especially as they transition from being students to being part of an interprofessional clinical team. I believe that these transitional periods may provide opportunities for educational interventions that can add meaningful value to the experience for the learners.
