Dr. Church is a Florida native, and joins the Gregory School of Pharmacy at Palm
Beach Atlantic University after working as an assistant professor in the department
of clinical and administrative sciences at Larkin University College of Pharmacy in
Miami, FL. Dr. Church completed both her PGY1 in pharmacy practice and PGY2 in psychiatric
pharmacy at the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center. During these two
residency years, she gained outpatient and inpatient clinical training in a variety
of settings, with a special interest in psychiatry and ambulatory care. She has a
strong passion for psychiatry and deeply desires to optimize patient care and reduce
stigmas in the realm of mental health. During her PGY2 she served on an interprofessional
healthcare team, sparking her interest for interprofessional education (IPE). As a
result, she has diligently worked to implement and build IPE opportunities for the
students at her current university. Dr. Church is a board-certified pharmacist in
pharmacotherapy (BCPS) and psychiatry (BCPP). She is actively involved in the College
of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists (CPNP), the American Association of Colleges
of Pharmacy (AACP), and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
Her research areas of interest include interprofessional education, scholarship of
teaching and learning, and neuropsychiatry. She is very active in her church, is an
avid Gator fan, and enjoys doing art projects in her free time. As an alumna, Dr.
Church is thrilled to be returning to PBA, and hopes to make a lasting impact on her
students, creatively collaborating with her colleagues and serving the community locally
