Receiving the George Malmberg Student Scholarship for Compounding Excellence allows me to grow and unveil unique experiences that I can apply beyond my P4 year. As a licensed Pharmacist I will make cultivating trust my responsibility. There are pet owners and there are pet parents that need information on medications. I want to provide my animal patients with the care they need and be a strong resource for veterinarians.

In February 2019, I had the privilege and the honor of attending the ACA| ACVP Annual Conference and Expo as a travel grant recipient in St. Pete Beach, FL. This scholarship allowed me to network multiple pharmacists from across the country who had experience in compounding and veterinary pharmacy. The conference reminded me of why I love this profession and why I plan to specialize in veterinary pharmacy, with an emphasis in compounding. I have made lasting connections with some of the top pharmacists in their field which I would not have had the opportunity to do so. I am looking forward to attending more conferences in the future.

For me, receiving the Pharmacist Mutual | ACA Foundation Community Pharmacy Travel Grant was truly life-changing. Being interested in pursuing a career in veterinary pharmacy, I knew that it was a small, close-knit world. This scholarship provided me with the means to be able to attend the ACA | ACVP Annual Conference and Expo and granted me access to that world. I had the amazing opportunity to network with individuals in the field as well as those that served as pioneers of veterinary pharmacy. I strongly believe that this experience has opened doors for me that would have previously remained elusive. The warm welcome that I received by this community just cemented the fact that I am on the right path. I can not wait to work with these individuals and organizations in my future career!
