RETURN TO ELECTION BALLOT
Carlette grew up in Galveston, Texas and graduated from Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy. She relocated to Melbourne, Florida to accept a pharmacy leadership position with Health First Health System. Along with her husband Craig, she is the proud grandmother of one and a half grandsons (premiering in December), three children, ages 25 to 31, and a very spoiled Chow-Labrador.
Since moving to Florida in 2013, she has been active in the Brevard County Pharmacy Association, FPA, FSHP, in addition to ASHP. The most exciting day in her career was being able to participate and witness the real difference front line pharmacists can make by speaking truth to power at the Florida Pharmacy Association Legislative Days in March of this year. She has a fierce commitment to serve and desires undeniable recognition of the pharmacist as the most accessible and committed advocate for the patient and partner to the physician.
Prior to relocating to Florida, Carlette had been active in various communities in working with the elderly and participating in indigent outreach efforts through her church membership.
I seek to engage in a more active role in FPA in order to represent the concerns of Brevard county pharmacists and positively impact Florida pharmacy practice. My primary goal is to support a stronger healthcare and community alliance that supports pharmacy as the primary connector for transitional care of the patient from hospital to home, relative to safety in medication management.
Though my most recent experience in pharmacy has been specific to hospital and system pharmacy management, I also have a background in independent and chain pharmacy, and enjoy professional and academic mentorship. I will use my background in these areas to represent all pharmacists to further our professional goals and improve patient care. I could not be more honored than to be nominated for a position of service with the Florida Pharmacy Association Region 6 Board of Directors.
