Clinical Associate Professor

College of Pharmacy

UT Austin

As a pharmacy professor, it is important for me to show the students the relevance of the information being provided so that they can understand how to apply it in their practice setting. I want to instill in them the knowledge and tools they need to be successful practitioners and to develop the confidence to use their knowledge and skills. I incorporate stories and examples from my own career to provide students with real world examples of how to apply the information, and I share my successes as well as my failures as a pharmacist.
