I am a certified pharmacy technician with over 9 years of experience in pharmacy and customer service. I began my pharmacy career at Walgreens, where I found how rewarding it is to help patients. I transitioned to Duke by working at Lincoln Community Health Center Pharmacy, where I was able to serve the Latino and the uninsured/underserved people of Durham. I enjoy working with DukeWELL, because it allows me to help patients remain healthy, reach their goals, and connect them with resources in their community.

I am a Certified Pharmacy Technician currently enrolled in Durham Technical Community College pursuing a degree in nursing. I have been in pharmacy since 2004, where I began working in a retail pharmacy as a cashier. An opportunity presented itself when I received the chance to move into a tech position. I became determined to succeed by teaching myself how to read sig codes, brand generic drugs and their uses, and basic pharmacy operations. I quickly recognized the joy associated with successfully working with all backgrounds of people and contributing to the well-being and health of the community. Since then I’ve worked my way throughout various areas or pharmacy including inpatient, IV preparation, chemotherapy, medication administration, and some work with drug efficacy and safety. I am excited about the patient centered work that is being done through DukeWELL and PHMO, and I look forward to contributing to the success of our patients.
