What brought you to Sanibel?

It was an opportunity to work in a professional service oriented environment and the opportunity to interact with patients.

What do you enjoy most about the islands?

I really enjoy helping people and this career choice gave me that opportunity.

Any advice for staying healthy?

Just something as making a conscious decision to eat well most of the time will have positive health benefits.

What are the greatest challenges and rewards to being a pharmacist in today’s often medically complex world?

Challenges would be in keeping abreast of the newest information, and the rewards are in applying the information and being able to help a patient better themselves.

The long and short term goals are always focused on offering more services and taking care of the patient to a greater degree that they are accustomed to.
