1. What is the most gratifying part of your work?
Helping people recognize how drugs work in the body so they can avoid experiencing drug related problems. I believe that women are the major decision makers in their family for medical care issues and that effective education can help reduce or eliminate medication errors, side effects, and unnecessary costs associated with drug therapy.

To help others.
3. Special interests
Drug therapy, especially drugs for bladder control, hormone replacement, and personal lubricants.
