      "I did my undergraduate in chemistry and medical school at St. George's University. I loved surgery, so my electives were in general surgery, trauma epidemiology, and orthopedics. I'm happy to be moving on to more responsibility as a resident. I have had some amazing mentors, and I found that I could perform with some different teaching styles."

      "I went to pharmacy school at St. John's University where I met many motivated and successful professors. My learning experiences during my rotations are what got me interested in hospital pharmacy. I saw how much pharmacists took pride in their work and it made me take pride in my work. Even as an intern I felt very respected and heard by the many faculty with whom I've worked."
