What is your favorite chapter/school tradition?
My favorite chapter tradition is our Hygeia Day event. We host a dinner for collegiate members and local alumni to listen to a guest speaker and spend quality time with one another. It is a great opportunity to take a much needed break from the hectic semester to refocus on the bigger picture of why I chose this profession and why we are putting all of these hours into studying! In addition, we also hold our annual elections after the dinner. I always get excited to see all of the members being elected into their position, especially as I progress in the program and get to see more leaders flourish in their roles.
Who do you see as your role model in LKS and why?
My role model in LKS is Lauren Chars, a Phi collegiate member and the Phi President before me! She has taught me so much about leadership, scholarship, and integrity. Lauren is extremely driven and dedicated to this profession and to serving others. Her care for others is apparent in her actions and the way she serves this fraternity. She is busy working hard on her rotations, but still attends our meetings when she can and is always willing to lend an ear. Her positive attitude, honesty, and discipline are always such an encouragement! I am extremely blessed to have been able to learn so much from her!
What makes you excited to be a ‘lamb for life?’
I am excited to be a ‘lamb for life’ and be able to give back to this fraternity as an alumni! This fraternity has given me so many friendships, learning experiences, connections, and avenues of encouragement. Between convention and events with LKS alumni in the Indy area, I have had so many opportunities to learn more about the pharmacy profession and how I fit into the pharmacy world. As much as I have learned from these amazing women about the pharmacy world, they have also taught me as much about managing my personal and home life. Though I have been a member for a short four years, I have gained so much from being a lamb!
