Publications

I strongly believe education and life-long learning is at the core of successful pharmacy practice. Beyond teaching foundational knowledge, I also focus on promoting open communication, critical thinking and reasoning, and engaging learners to take ownership of education. I believe teaching these skills will develop pharmacy practitioners who are well positioned to positively impact the health of our community throughout their careers.
