NHPA Scholarship Awardee 2013, 2014, 2015

The New Hampshire Pharmacists Association scholarship has provided me with financial assistance, opened the doors for new professional relationships, and intensified the pride I have for my community service and scholastic achievements. I am a four-time recipient of the scholarship, and each year I applied, I was able to share exciting updates with the committee, including my most recent pharmacy service trip to Jamaica, my latest tutoring idea, or how I planned to further my career and become a leader in pharmacy. The committee took personal interest in my completed accomplishments and future endeavors, and often remembered to ask about these achievements and opportunities in follow-up correspondence. The New Hampshire Pharmacists Association has provided me with the opportunity to form relationships with, and learn from, truly influential mentors; this opportunity has inspired me to become the best possible version of myself, both personally and as a healthcare professional.
