“Prior to joining Kroger Health in January 2022 as Clinical Program Development Manager, I led American Pharmacists Association’s strategic technology solutions for credentials verification and workforce development as Associate Vice President of Pharmacy Profiles and ADVANCE. In that role, I had the responsibility for product strategy, partnership formation, financial oversight, business development, marketing, customer service, technology maintenance, data security, and aligning operations with APhA and the changing pharmacy objectives. My APhA Foundation Executive Residency in 2010-11 grew my knowledge, skills, and confidence to understand the national pharmacy landscape, navigate association dynamics, manage projects and colleagues, and solve problems with a determined, positive outlook.”
