She is a member of the Pharmacy Practice department at LIU Pharmacy and teaches in the pharmacotherapeutics series on several disease states. She serves on several committees such as the faculty including the awards committee and the scholastic committee just to name a few. She served as the faculty co-adviser for Lambda Kappa Sigma Pharmacy Fraternity. Her research interests include clinical management of chronic disease states.

Research Interests:
My interests related to scholarship and research principally align with ambulatory care encompassing chronic disease state management. The focus of my work will continue to be largely in the form of case reporting, review analysis and investigations in the areas associated with ambulatory care as they relate to my practice. Additionally, I am interested heavily in the concept of inter-professional education and the effects on clinical outcomes and education.
