Family, Pets, Hobbies, Etc.


Family is everything to me. I have two nephews and two nieces that are just beyond adorable and I like to spend as much time as possible with them. I love to play sports and I actually actively play tennis, volleyball, football, basketball, and table tennis.

Why I Am Doing a Residency


I am currently serving as a Lieutenant in the Commissioned Corps of the United States Public Health Service. I am assigned to the Indian Health Service agency. I chose this agency within USPHS because of my prior experience of doing mission trips with the American Indian population in Oklahoma. I am drawn towards serving underserved populations and I wanted to be the best I possibly could be with my patient care skills. The Residency program at Lawton is enabling me to do this through their various ambulatory care clinics while gaining valuable experience on the Health Care team by being part of various committees at the hospital. IHS is the pioneer and at the forefront of pharmacist clinician activities in patient care and I have already been able to travel to Arizona where Pharmacist mid-level practitioners across the nation have come in to teach us physical assessment skills. Due to the underserved nature of our patient population and the provider shortage, I am able to obtain the best training possible in the direction I believe pharmacy HAS to evolve into.


One Interesting Fact

I think we would be hard pressed to find a pharmacist who is as well versed with the DC Comics Universe. I know the original 7 of the Justice League team and their origin stories inside out.

Also, my name in Malayalam means Happiness
