Please describe the experiences, people, dual degree/courses, work, service and/or leadership experiences that have meant to the most to you and helped you to get where you are today: Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences offers a plethora of leadership opportunities, research, and community service that helps build one’s confidence in the field. Many of the faculty members are readily available to help and offer guidance. Being involved with the pharmacy fraternity Phi Delta Chi (PDC), volunteering at the free clinic and mobile clinic greatly strengthened my clinical knowledge. I was Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) committee chair of Fighting Diabetes and collaborated with other committees to host health fairs, create informational flyers for the people of Harnett County. Furthermore, I was a group fitness instructor at Campbell’s recreation center where I encouraged lifestyle modification and continued to maintain my academic performance throughout.
