What do you want to do with your life? It is a question that almost everyone asks high school and college students, but for many, it is a dreaded question that is difficult to answer. For me, that wasn’t the case, as ever since my sophomore year of high school, my answer has been to become a pharmacist.

I was intrigued by all the options that began on the foundation of learning science, understanding medications, and caring for patients.

My Butler University academic training and intern experience has positioned me to recognize and appreciate the essential role performed by the clinical pharmacist. Although sometimes transparent, it is the clinical pharmacist that is central to a patient’s ultimate successful recovery. This was evident during my clinical rotations, where I directly participated in the optimization of medication therapy to achieve patient-specific outcomes; it is for this reason I am impassioned and compelled to pursue a residency. As a PGY-1 resident, I plan to apply my clinical knowledge in the acute and ambulatory care settings to identify medication-related problems and make therapeutic recommendations in collaboration with other practitioners. Upon completion
The career I have chosen is to be a pharmacist. The job title for this career is mostly known as a pharmacist.

Every since I was a little girl I never got to see what success really was, I grew up in a family that wasn’t the best that wasn’t truly even a family. But that is okay because if it wasn’t for them then I wouldn’t have achieved what will hold my entire future. I became successful and that is all the success I need to see. Finally at the age 28 I have realized that as long as you push yourself and set goals for yourself, nothing that has happened to you or that is in your path can stop you. You can have anything in the world you want as long as you put your mind to it and never give up. And finally as of last year I got my pharmacy degree.

Growing up I soon began to get exposed to the world of pharmacy. I believe being a pharmacist will give me the intellectual fulfillment I yearn for. I have gotten to the stage in life where I now know my calling; given my several trails and experiences.
I originally entered college as an ambitious business major with plans to complete the pre-med track as well. But, I quickly learned that I needed to narrow my focus to one or the other, especially taking on a demanding college baseball schedule involving year round practice and a forty game season. Although I have always been enthusiastic about business, I decided that I didn’t want to pursue a career path that would most likely put my behind a desk crunching numbers or pushing sales all day. It personally seemed to me as something that lacked real meaningfulness and an ability to make a significant impact. Meaningfulness and the ability to apply my love for science was what had always peaked my interest in the medical field. In my sophomore
Over the past few weeks I have been researching my interests, values, and goals. Throughout this research a lot of things that were already evident to me, were proven for a fact.

If I was asked why I wanted to study medicine a year ago I would have provided a fairly satisfactory answer but if I’m asked why I want to study medicine - or continue studying – now I’m positive that I can provide the best answer possible due to the fact that I have actually studied and engaged in Medicine the whole past year.
The flow of the medical community is dependent on every person employed there. The harmony it creates does not only come from the doctors or nurses, but the janitors, surgeons, receptionists, and even the pharmacists. Each job is necessary in order for the hospitals to function properly; for instance, the doctors diagnose the patient with their illness, prescribe them medication to cure it, and send them to the pharmacist, who then gives them their medication and sends them home. However, some jobs are overlooked more than others and do not receive the proper credit, like the pharmacist. Pharmacists are recognized for dispensing and sorting drugs, but their jobs help educate patients over their prescription and uphold the
