2023-2024 Executive Fellow Taylor Williams Off to a GREAT START

In February, we were delighted to announce Taylor Williams as KPhA's 2023-2024 Executive Fellow, and as of last week, she is officially in her new role at the Association. Funded by the Kentucky Pharmacy Education and Research Foundation (KPERF), the Fellowship Program was created to facilitate the growth and advancement of the profession of pharmacy in Kentucky. Designed to develop leaders who are prepared to assume high-level leadership roles in pharmacy practice or professional associations, the fellowship cultivates the next generation of leadership--essential to the profession's livelihood.

 

Taylor, a 2023 PharmD graduate from the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy, has shown why she was the best fit for the job. Less than a week as KPhA's Executive Fellow, and she has meetings scheduled on The Hill (yes, Capitol Hill) with five members of the Kentucky delegation. We will share more of that exciting news when she returns from Washington, D.C.
  
Originally from Hazard, Kentucky, Taylor will be a second-generation pharmacist. Throughout pharmacy school, she was actively involved in the Kentucky Pharmacists Association, serving on the Board of Directors in 2021-2022 and the Membership Engagement and Organizational Affairs Committees. Likewise, she served as Chapter President and Region 4 Delegate to the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists and was the Phi Lambda Sigma Secretary in 2022. She defends her final capstone project next week and will add three more letters to her resume in August when she receives her Master of Public Administration. 

Taylor, who will continue to work at her family's pharmacy in Hazard one day a week, will bring a fresh perspective to the Association and a vast understanding of the role of transformative care in the community pharmacy setting. 

Please join us in officially welcoming Taylor Williams as KPhA's 2023-2024 Executive Fellow.
