6 Days to Go:  Hello everyone! My name is Amanda Fenstermacher, and I am currently in my last year of pharmacy school at Wilkes University. I have been a pharmacy intern at a CVS, a widely known community pharmacy, in my hometown for 6 years now. Throughout my college career I became more and more involved with organizations like the American Pharmacists Association and the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association, and I became highly involved with tutoring the local children of all ages at the YMCA, which is an organization with a cause to strengthen the community. My professional goals are to continuously strive to improve the quality of care for patients, and I remain open-minded to different career opportunities. As far as hobbies go, I enjoy scuba diving, playing the piano/singing, running, skiing, and doing any kind of outdoor activities. I grew up with an older sister who is a physician’s assistant working in oncology/hematology, and I also have a stepsister who works in human resources.

With regard to my personal life, I recently got engaged to a friend I have known and traveled with since I was 11!

Ever since I was young, I have done a lot of international traveling, mostly to the Caribbean for scuba diving, and I have also traveled to a couple places in Europe (France and Finland). Africa is what attracted me to this experience (because I have always wanted to go to Africa), and I thought this would be an absolutely unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience! I look forward to seeing what pharmacy practice is like in Uganda/Africa, and most of all, the impact that this experience will have on me!
