Pharmacy Students Ready to Travel

Now with less than 2 weeks to go until we leave for Africa, I’d like to introduce the four Wilkes Pharmacy students who will be embarking on this new “safari” with me.  {You may recall from an entry last June that the word “safari” means “journey”.}  I have asked them to send me a picture and write a short statement about themselves.  Today I’ll start with Melissa and introduce the others over the next few days.


Hi my name is Melissa and I will be traveling to Uganda with the Wilkes University Global APPE. I chose to go on this trip of a lifetime because I have a passion for traveling, learning new cultures and serving/learning from others. I am excited to learn/work/serve along side the people of Uganda. After pharmacy school I will serve as a pharmacist and Captain in the United States Air Force. In pharmacy school I am involved with APhA (American Pharmacists Association), serving two years as the Heartburn Awareness Chair.  I am also a member of LKS (a professional sorority) and have served one term as secretary and one term as social chair. I was also involved with Alternative Spring Break and was an e-mentor/orientation leader (for Wilkes) for 3 years. In my spare time I like to golf, run, cheer on the Phillies (baseball team) and PSU (Penn State University) football, and travel. Internationally, I have been to the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Belize.
