What I do

As vice dean of academic affairs, I represent the dean’s office and provide guidance, assessment, and action on all issues related to policies and procedures for academic affairs. This includes leading the School's Office of Faculty Academic Affairs; review of appointments for faculty and non-faculty academics; evaluation of appraisal, advancement and promotion packets; analysis and advising on issues related to faculty compensation, benefits and outside professional activities; providing consultative support for faculty and department chairs on the appeals and problem-resolution processes relating to academic personnel issues; and representing the School of Pharmacy in school, campus and system-wide discussions related to academic affairs and academic policy issues.

I am also a professor in the Department of Clinical Pharmacy and a licensed practicing pharmacist. My research and practice efforts have been focused on the community pharmacist’s role in the areas of asthma, COPD, tobacco cessation, immunization delivery, and medication therapy management.
