Over the years, she’s been fortunate to be part of the ASHP “Leading Edge” and ASHP Foundation “Pharmacy Leadership Academy” programs.
Currently, she is the Director of Pharmacy Services at Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Alabama. She is involved in inpatient care in a different manner than those in clinical or staff roles. Her job is to ensure medication safety and regulatory compliance for all patients in the hospital.
