                             PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
I have been able to develop diverse pharmaceutical skills through work exposure in the
hospital and retail settings. My hospital experiences have given me the opportunity to
become knowledgeable and efficient in IV admixture, chemotherapy preparation, TPN
preparation, pharmacokinetic dosing, extemporaneous compounding, and order entry. I
have been exposed to multiple pharmacy settings such as critical care, mother-baby,
general medicine, psychiatric, emergency, and burn units. My retail experiences have
given me the skills to screen and process prescriptions, counsel patients on prescription
and over-the-counter medications, and process third-party payment plans. Both settings
have developed my verbal communication skills with health care professionals,
colleagues, and patients.
