Additional Information

I am a licensed California pharmacist, and a licensed Hawaii pharmacist currently working in hospital pharmacy. My travel pharmacy work throughout facilities in California include the following: ambulatory care clinics, long term care, home care and home infusion pharmacy, retail pharmacy and community pharmacy, and acute care hospitals. I have a combined background in pharmacy with a law degree. I have used the combined expertise to write reports for the California State Board of Pharmacy, conduct risk analyses and assessments, ensure regulatory compliance, identify safety improvement areas, and help prevent errors and near misses, among other activities. My current work is hands-on/front line experience. I am witness to changes happening in real time in many different pharmacy venues: changes in management, pharmacy workflow, policies and procedures, personnel training and competencies, drug protocols, computer documentation, software updates, management of new drugs, and safe medication practices. This direct engagement has led to a routine practice of problem-solving and critical thinking in my pharmacy practice.
