Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Business Administration (PharmD/MBA) dual-degree

Why did you choose pharmacy as a career?

I chose pharmacy as a career because of my Father. He experienced a life-changing health crisis when I was in high school and was sent home on multiple medications. I wanted to learn more about those medications and how they worked which led me down the career path of Pharmacy. 

Why did you choose WVU?

I chose WVU because I was born and raised as a proud Mountaineer. WVU also has a great pharmacy program.

What would you tell your freshmen self?

To enjoy college while it lasts. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was a freshman here at WVU. I specifically remember telling myself, ‘I have six years here, and I can’t wait to be done.’ Now, I wish I had more time to enjoy WVU before I leave.

What will you remember most during your time at WVU?

The priceless friendships I have made, the magnificent views from Coopers Rock and the incredible feeling of hearing/singing “Country Roads” after a win!

What’s next for you?

I plan to start my career at as a retail pharmacist—utilizing my MBA. I want to continue my growth as a pharmacist and as a Mountaineer and to be the best I can be.
