"During pharmacy school, both community pharmacy and association management fascinated me. The NCPA Executive Residency program was the perfect intersection of my interests. As the Resident I developed programs and resources to support community pharmacists with marketplace changes, a skillset that has served me well in staff roles. Community pharmacies have a profound impact on their neighborhoods, and I feel beyond honored to work to support them through enhanced service implementation every day."
