  • Dossier Introduction & Purpose Statement

    August 2023 (Sixth-Year Tenure and Promotion Review- 1-year COVID extension granted 2021)

    This narrative statement is guided by the Department of Pharmacy Practice Tenure and Promotion Evaluation Elaborations document and the University of Toledo Guidelines for Faculty Evaluation of Tenure and Promotion document.

    The purpose of this dossier is to outline and document the evidences of my professional career at The University of Toledo. This document highlights the accomplishments thus far of my evolution from a lecturer to a tenure-track faculty member and a leader at this institution.

    I completed a PGY-1 Residency in Community Pharmacy at The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in partnership with the Kroger Co. from 2011-2012. In 2012, I was hired at The University of Toledo as a Clinical Lecturer in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. During my four years as a lecturer, my primary roles and responsibilities were teaching in the PharmD skills lab series of courses, in clinical practice providing diabetes education services, research related to clinical practice, and serving on the Curriculum Committee. Upon transitioning to tenure-track in July 2016, I continued with these responsibilities, as they supported the needs of the College for experiential training of students and aligned with my research focus at the time.

    My involvement in the Curriculum Committee led me to assume the role of the PharmD Skills Lab Coordinator in 2016. In this capacity, I am responsible for implementing new skills lab courses, ensuring a streamlined progression of content, and assessing teaching and learning outcomes. Teaching in and coordinating the skills lab naturally shifted my research focus towards the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, my involvement in in-person clinical practice was put on hold, and I transitioned to providing remote services from March 2020 to summer 2021. While this shift led to a significant decrease in research opportunities related to clinical practice, it opened new opportunities for conducting SoTL research on virtual teaching and learning.

    In July 2021, I was offered the administrative position of Director of Assessment due to my experience in assessment related to the skills lab series and my portfolio of SoTL research. The Director of Assessment responsibilities align with my professional interests and career goals and supports my research efforts in SoTL. Additionally, this position fulfills the College’s current needs related to PharmD accreditation, program assessment at the University level, and reporting to the Higher Learning Commission for the other eleven degree programs within the College.

    Throughout my tenure track, I have continued to build on my established responsibilities and have taken on new roles and responsibilities that align with my research interests and career goals. This document contains evidence that showcases my continued development and capabilities as an Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice in three key areas: teaching, professional activity, and service. I am committed to ongoing professional development, research, and service to the College and the broader academic community. I am grateful for the opportunities and support provided to me by the College and am excited to continue to contribute to its mission of “educating students to become pharmacists while advancing pharmaceutical knowledge” in the years to come.
