Hello from Ole Miss Pharmacy!
I am excited to serve as the school’s interim dean and interim executive director of RIPS. I have officially been in the role for just over a month, and I have enjoyed learning about all the exciting happenings and opportunities available at the SOP.
Our incredible faculty, staff, scientists, preceptors and students have built an atmosphere within the school that supports academic and professional success. We have so much to be proud of, and I’m excited to expand on the strong foundation that this phamily has accomplished.
A quick introduction of myself: I received three degrees from the UM School of Pharmacy, including a Ph.D. from the Department of Pharmacy Administration. After working as a faculty member at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, I returned to Oxford in 2008 to serve as Pharmacy Administration’s chair.
In 2017, I moved to the Office of the Provost as associate provost where my role oversaw a wide variety of faculty, student and administrative matters. Now I’m privileged to serve as interim dean at one of the nation’s best pharmacy schools and research centers.
I am excited to welcome back everyone this month as we make a full return to our campuses, and I hope to see all of our alumni and friends soon. Please reach out if I can ever be of assistance.
Thanks and Hotty Toddy!
