About Ellie:

Hi everyone! I’m Ellie and I’m in my second year of a Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane. I’ve been involved in my home branch, QUTSPA, this year as the Publications Chair and I’m so honoured to be the NAPSA Publications Chair for the 2020/2021 term! As Publications Chair for NAPSA, my role involves publishing our bi-monthly ePlacebo, as well as promoting events, opportunities and pharmacy publications on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I stay in regular contact with all the Australian student pharmacy association branches to ensure I’m up to date with their events!

During my term, I hope to provide students with a video resource that showcases the career pathways that a pharmacy degree can offer. This video will aim to highlight the working environment and job description of hospital, community and industry pharmacists! I know that a pharmacy degree can be stressful at first, and choosing a career pathway might seem quite daunting. So, I hope that my video can alleviate some of this anxiety by providing insight to what lays ahead! Stay tuned :)
