I have worked at O’Connell Pharmacy since March 2008 and became a Certified Pharmacy Technician in 2012. I’ve progressed in my career, working as a pharmacy assistant, data entry and cycle fill technician, and billing specialist. In 2016, I became the first Assistant Manager of the Long Term Care store.

I would like serve on the Technician Board to better the future of pharmacy, and specifically the scope of pharmacy technician practice. I have dedicated twelve years of my life to pharmacy and truly have a passion for it. I would also like to lead new pharmacy ideas, be more inclusive of all pharmacy types, be a voice of Long Term Care technicians, and also help technicians keep up to date on what the Technician Board and the world of pharmacy.

I am married and have 3 children. We enjoy camping, fishing, and hunting.For the past three years I was the director of our church’s Vacation Bible School Program, consisting of approximately 8 months of planning.I also was the Lieutenant Governor of Key Club (volunteer organization).On top of attending local and international conventions, we also ran our district convention of over 300 volunteers, and 500 kid attendees.

I am a graduate of Lakeshore Technical College, completing the pharmacy technician and pharmacy management programs. As a Certified Pharmacy Technician, I worked retail pharmacy at Shopko before transitioning to Advocate Aurora Healthcare (AAH).  In my three years at AAH, I became the IV room expert for my site, am heavily involved in system-wide teams on drug purchasing, shortages, technician practice council, IV room specialists and medication history standardization.  I also help support the system automation/pyxis team.

I would like to serve on the PSW Technician Section Board because I have grown professionally over the last year participating in their webinars.  While I recognize I am relatively new to PSW, I am a go-getter and would like the opportunity to give back and support PSW technician advancement. I practice in a smaller community hospital, yet I am part of a large system, collaborating daily with technicians from larger sites, retail and nontraditional practice areas.  I would like to come together with PSW technicians across the state, providing a voice to advance the recognition of all pharmacy technicians as valuable members of the health care team.

I recently became a mother and have been with my husband for 10 years. I have three amazing fur babies - a lab and two cats.  When I’m not taking care of my real or fur babies, I enjoy shopping or bowling!
