Email: Emily.shephard@ascension.org

I was born and raised in Northern California and earned my PharmD at Pacific University School of Pharmacy in Portland, Oregon. I completed my PGY1 residency at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I was able to experience pharmacy in a variety of settings and discover a love of green chile. I am very excited to continue training in infectious diseases in Austin as a PGY2. My professional interests include gram negative resistance and fungal infections. I hope to become a board certified infectious diseases pharmacist after my PGY2 and eventually serve as a PGY2 residency director. Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with my family and two cats, and getting takeout from all of the local restaurants that Austin has to offer!
