"Everyone on the team is quick to reach out to help provide our patients with the resources they need to reach their goals. While many places emphasize the importance of “patient-centered care,” this team really practices what they preach. The support I receive from everyone, from the physicians to the medical office assistances, makes me feel valued and supported so I can provide the best care for my patients."

Bio

I am a passionate educator who enjoys teaching patients, medical residents, pharmacy residents, and students. Areas of interest include interprofessional education, diabetes management, motivational interviewing and behavior change. I am the pharmacist coordinator in the Daniels Interprofessional Care course with both Hopkins Nursing and Medicine faculty. In 2019, I was awarded faculty mentor of the year in at Notre Dame of Maryland University where I have been serving as assistant professor since 2016. I have also been a recognized for my contributions to patient care by the Johns Hopkins Hospital Pharmacists Clinical Practice Council Clinical Intervention Program.

My personal interests include visiting Cylburn Arboretum and anything plant related, leading a small group at my church, and trying new recipes. I am from North Carolina and visit my family there often but have enjoyed developing a “Bmore family” with my friends here in Baltimore.
