More About Michael
What one accomplishment are you most proud of?
The accomplishment that I am most proud of will occur when I obtain my doctoral degree from the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy. What makes me most proud of this accomplishment is how hard I had to work to get there and some of the obstacles I had to overcome to get to the finish line.
What are your hidden talents that most people don’t know about?
If I had to choose I would probably say that a hidden talent of mine would be my ability to fix things on my own when I can. Sometimes all I need is a YouTube video or two and the right tools for the job and I am good to go.
What your guilty pleasure?
I would probably have to say French fries and cake are my guilty pleasure. I can never have enough of either.
What’s on your bucket list?
I really enjoy watching and playing sports particularly basketball and football. Right now I would probably say that to go to an NBA All-Star Weekend and an NBA Finals Game would be on my bucket list. I hope I am able to make that happen soon.
What are you looking forward to in your time with ThinkGenetic?
During my time with ThinkGenetic my goal is to come in with an open and clear mind to soak up all I can from this unique experience. Right now I am still trying to fully figure out what my unique path in pharmacy will be and my hope is to gain whatever I can from this experience and use it towards building my pharmacy future.
