Meet Your Advisory Board

Christina Schiler, Student Director - West
LECOM, PharmD Candidate 2019

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

I fell in love with being a part of PPA on LECOM's campus and I couldn't wait for the opportunity to take my involvement to the next level!

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

I want to make sure every pharmacy student in PA is aware of all of the incredible opportunities being a student member of PPA provides, which I hope will help grow our membership. I also aim to strengthen each campuses involvement by having more communication between schools for ideas and feedback. 


3. Where do you see yourself in five years?

I'm still somewhat torn between wanting to do a clinical residency and working at an independent community pharmacy.  I've been fortunate enough to have incredible experiences in both settings, but I'm hoping future opportunities will help draw me in one direction.  Whichever path I choose, I hope to be well established in my career and beginning to build a family five years from now.


4. What activities are you currently involved in?

I am LECOM's Script Your Future Coordinator, so I am very involved with organizing LECOM's involvement in the SYF campaign.  This position is a part of our Student Government Association which allows me to work with that team in hopes of making sure everyone has the best experience possible during their time at LECOM.  I also serve as APhA's OTC Medication Safety Chair, am a LECOM Ambassador, and am always jumping at any other opportunity to get out in the community and volunteer.

5. What do you do in your free time?

I'm a lover of just about anything outdoors- hiking, kayaking, fishing, and skiing, among others.  I also enjoy a good spontaneous adventure to somewhere new and any opportunity to spend time with family and friends.


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

It may sound silly, but I would absolutely love to meet Ellen DeGeneres.  She is undeniably successful and absolutely hilarious, but she is also an extraordinary humanitarian.  I'm so inspired by passion to support deserving organizations and individuals.  She is constantly going out of her way to make others happy and stand up for what she believes in, and I think simply being around her would amazing.
