Citizenship: USA


I am a highly motivated pharmacist with a solid foundation in prescription processing. I am well versed in pharmaceutical calculations, drug interactions, and pharmacy law. I enjoy helping patients get access to their needed medications and achieve a streamlined medication regimen which interfaces optimally with either their medical insurance restrictions or out-of-pocket needs. Overall, I am interested in using my skills to provide optimal healthcare to patients.

Although I am a foreign pharmacy graduate, I have conducted my pharmacy internship in the United States and completed all exams and licensing requirements to practice as a pharmacist. I am now seeking employment in retail pharmacy.
