PGY2 Infectious Diseases Resident

Nina Maguire, PharmD

School: University of Georgia College of Pharmacy

PGY1: Ascension Seton


I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia before moving to Athens for pharmacy school where I picked up a love for Georgia football.  In my free time, I enjoy exploring all of the great food and coffee places here in Austin, attending book club with some of my new friends I’ve made since moving here, cooking, and cheering on the Dawgs.  My professional interests are geared towards working with an immunocompromised patient population as well as being involved with public health opportunities within my community.

PGY1 Pediatric Focus Pharmacy Resident

Abigail Grimm, PharmD

School: Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy


I have lived in Alabama for the past 10 years of my life. Growing up, my family moved around a lot, so I have lived in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and now Texas. I love to do anything outdoors, including playing tennis and hiking. I also really enjoy traveling – some of my favorite trips are the ones I have taken to national parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite with my family. My main professional interest is pediatrics, and I hope to continue to identify more specific interests in this area throughout my year as a PGY1 pharmacy resident.

PGY1 Pharmacy Residents

Ava Cascone, PharmD

School: University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy


My name is Ava Cascone and I’m from Yardley, Pennsylvania – a small town about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia, so I am a big Philadelphia Eagles fan. I like to run, go to concerts, and try new food in Austin! I have an interest in critical care and internal medicine and am considering a PGY2 in one of those 2 specialties.

Kailee Gaines, PharmD

School: The University of Texas at Austin


Though I have lived in several places, I consider Longview, Texas my hometown. I moved to Austin, Texas for pharmacy school and ended up staying for residency! My hobbies include spending time with my family, playing with my puppy, Rori, and exploring Austin. My professional interests include oncology and inpatient internal medicine, and I hope to pursue a PGY2 in one of these areas next year.

I was born and raised in Austin, TX. I completed my undergraduate studies in Chemistry at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.

After completion of the PGY1 residency program, I hope to pursue a PGY1 in infectious diseases.

I was born in Egypt, where I spent my childhood before moving to Dallas, Texas. My general hobbies include traveling, playing the guitar, sports, and learning new languages. My future plans intertwine with my current professional goals and interests; I have always been an ardent proponent of the expansion of pharmacy, which has gotten me to pursue my ongoing health-system pharmacy administration residency. I am planning on utilizing my residency training to continue my involvement in professional organizations and seek a leadership role in the future. One fun fact about me is being on national television in 3 different countries.
