photodune-1798779-woman-xs-1My name is Sean and I am honored to be the president of LAF. I have many years of pharmacy experience and love my community, Penn Hills. 

Besides being the president of LAF, I have twelve years of experience in a hospital setting, and eight years of experience as an instructor. Currently, I teach pharmacy classes at Bidwell Training Center, Inc., and own Parsons Printing Press.

In the community I volunteer at the Penn Hills Service Association and the Blessing Board, and I teach a bible study at Hebron United Presbyterian Church.

Work Experience

Pharmacy Instructor, Bidwell Training Center, Inc. - Pittsburgh, PA, 2006 - 2014
I have taught the following subjects at Bidwell:

  • Pharmacy Techniques
  • Pharmacy Lab
  • Pharmacy Math
  • Pharmacy Automation and Technology
  • Community Pharmacy Software

  • Microsoft Word

Pharmacy Technician, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center - Pittsburgh, PA, 1998 - 2007
I have had the opportunity to function in all parts of the pharmacy while I was at UPMC Presbyterian. I have managed to cover all shifts at all times of day while performing skills such as IV/Chemo preparation, prepacking, extemporaneous compounding, setting up and working with  various  forms  of   automation,   providing  pharmaceutical services  directly  in the  operating rooms, training new employees, maintaining staff schedules and more. 

Pharmacy Technician, Suburban General Hospital - Pittsburgh, PA, 1996 - 2005
Suburban General Hospital was my first experience of working as a technician, and possessed the advantage that it was small in size. This made it much easier to obtain a holistic view of the pharmacy's role in health care. My time there was so enjoyable that I stayed on staff their till December 2004, despite being full time with UPMC since August 1998. 

I have many years of pharmacy experience and love my community, Penn Hills.
