Tracy joined the University of Waterloo's School of Pharmacy as a clinical preceptor in 2016, a case assessor for the PharmD bridging program (PHARM 497) in 2016, and the Regional Clinical Coordinator for Sault Ste. Marie in 2019.
After graduating from the University of Saskatchewan College of Pharmacy in 2003, Tracy returned home to Sault Ste. Marie to start her career as a pharmacist. She worked as a retail pharmacist for two years prior to finding her passion as a clinical hospital pharmacist at Sault Area Hospital (SAH) in Sault Ste. Marie. She continues to work at SAH predominantly as a clinical pharmacist in the renal and oncology outpatient programs. In addition, she works as a clinical pharmacist on the inpatient medical units and occasionally works as a retail pharmacist at SAH's retail specialty pharmacy, iCcare Pharmacy. Tracy's work as a hospital pharmacist has allowed her to explore her passions in patient education, interprofessional collaboration, and expanded scope of practice. She has evolved the role of the renal pharmacist over the past decade, developing many patient education initiatives, a medical directive for anemia management by the pharmacist, and medication reconciliation in the hemodialysis unit and nephrology clinic.
Given her lifelong passion for learning and teaching, Tracy is honoured and excited to be a part of the University of Waterloo’s Experiential Learning Program. In her role as Regional Clinical Coordinator, she is committed to ensuring that our PharmD students have fulfilling clinical rotations that contribute to professional and personal development while providing exceptional patient care.
