This year’s technician of the year is frequently involved in VSHP activities, he not only attends VSHP conferences for VSHP, but he attends local meetings and provides valuable input on the current issues facing pharmacy technicians not just in the state but nationally. He also advocates for the pharmacy profession as a whole.

He received his diploma of pharmacy technician studies at Virginia College in 2013, he worked in various independent and retail pharmacies prior to his career at VCU Health where he is the controlled substance technician. He is part of a team that is responsible for controlled substance management and maintain document integrity both inpatient and outpatient throughout the health system which we all know is a top priority in healthcare right now. His support during controlled substance shortages especially the benzodiazepine shortage has been astounding. Not only is his expertise in this area irreplaceable but his peers are consistently impressed by his teamwork, advocating for patients, and coordination of the complex controlled substances inventory.
