Where are you at now?

“Currently I am a first-year pharmacy student at the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical campus at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. I am also gaining experience as a pharmacy intern at King Soopers.”


What would you like to pursue upon graduating from college and pharmacy school?

“I recently have graduated from undergraduate, and after I am pursuing a career in pharmacy and am enrolled in a 4 year Pharm. D program. Upon completion of this, I would like to open my own, independent pharmacy, in an underprivileged community so that I could provide service quickly and rapidly on common diseases to those who may not be aware and potentially save them time and money on an unnecessary doctor or ER visit.”

How do you think your Catholic formation at St. Rose prepared you to be successful in high school, college, and beyond?  

“My Catholic formation at St. Rose prepared me to be successful by teaching me respect, discipline, and faith.  St. Rose taught me respect for those around me who taught me, those who are less privileged than myself, and ultimately respect for myself; all which have helped guide me in a positive direction. St. Rose taught me discipline as well. At a young age, I learned that school was important.  I learned how to properly learn and was taught to critically think which I used all throughout my schooling.  Educational discipline was not the only type of discipline I learned, I also learned how to interact in an effective classroom and respect the teacher at young age.  Lastly, St. Rose taught me faith and how God can provide me with strength and guidance.  This is something that in tough times has given me courage to proceed onward and in good time, be thankful for what I have and the things I am doing.  St. Rose prepared me extremely well and I am very thankful that I was blessed with an opportunity to be a part of such a great place.  St. Rose laid the foundation for me to strive to become the best man I could possibly be and the doctor I want to become.”
