Meet Your Advisory Board

Colleen D'Amico, Chair
Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, PharmD Candidate 2018

1. Why did you decide to run to be a part of the Student Advisory Board?

I’ve greatly enjoyed being a part of PPA student leadership at PCP the past 3 years, and I especially loved my role as PCP’s Student Director last year, so I was excited and eager to run for a position on PPA’s Student Advisory Board so I could continue my involvement with PPA on an even larger scale!

2. What are you most looking forward to accomplishing during your term?

I am most looking forward to communicating and interacting with other pharmacy students and new practitioners to discover their interests and passions. By doing this, I hope that I can relay this information back to PPA and the Student Advisory Board so that we can plan relevant programming that will increase attendance and engagement at the Mid-Year and Annual conferences!


3. Where do you see yourself in five years?

I’m not quite sure yet! I am currently completing my APPE rotations, so I hope that these experiences will help me decide just where that is. My ultimate goal is to be working in a field of pharmacy where there is direct patient interaction and care, but my main area of interest right now is pursuing a career as a medical cannabis pharmacist.


4. What activities are you currently involved in?

My APPE rotations have limited my on-campus involvement slightly, but aside from PPA activities, I am currently involved with Phi Lambda Sigma, Black Student Union, APhA-ASP, and Devil’s Ink Writing Club.

5. What do you do in your free time?

In my free time I can be found exploring Philadelphia! Wandering around Philadelphia is my favorite stress reliever, plus it's great exercise and it's the best way to find all the coolest places in Philly. In addition, my other passions include cooking, practicing yoga, meditating, and most of all, sleeping.


6. If you could have dinner with anyone (alive/dead, real/fake, ect.) who would it be and why?

This is always a very tough question for me, but I would have to say Frida Kahlo. I could go on about my love for her for hours, but what I love most is her honesty, candor, passion, and how she was able to transform her endless pain and suffering into raw, colorful, and gorgeous masterpieces. She truly inspires me!
