Jessica - Pharmacy

Science Ambassador

Jessica pretending to drink a bottle of hot sauceYear: 3

Stream of study: Co-op

Career goal: The field of pharmacy is ever-changing and so am I! Currently, I'd love to be working in a community pharmacy, impacting the lives of patients within my community.

Favourite food: Anything spicy!

How I get involved: To begin, I am a proud science ambassador! During my first two years on main campus, I have been a volunteer with Let's Talk Science, Science Outreach, and FEDS (University of Waterloo's Federation of Students). I have been a front line leader during orientation week, cheering on those incoming first years. I was a mentor for the Science Student Help Team during my 2B term. Since joining the School of Pharmacy, I have been a volunteer with CAN (Community Action Now), a mentor with RxPRN (an online support group for pharmacy students), and an ambassador for the School of Pharmacy.



Why I love my program

I love my program because it combines my passion for healthcare, science, and interacting with people. Pharmacy is also a fast evolving field where there are constant developments and the School of Pharmacy does a fantastic job of preparing us for the future.

Why University of Waterloo?

I loved with tight-knit community of the science faculty. Despite being a very large faculty, there was always familiar faces. Waterloo's commitment to co-op and getting students ready to work in their fields is also an important aspect for me.
