She is a graduate of the University of Mississippi where she received her Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmacy Administration). Her dissertation entitled; The Relationship between Psychological Contract Breach, Professional Identity and Organizational Citizenship Behaviors among Pharmacy Faculty: An Equity Sensitivity Perspective identified differences in attitude and characteristics among groups of pharmacy faculty members that impact their behaviors at work.

She also worked for Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corporation as the Director of Market Services.
