Ethics/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I am a student pursuing a career in pharmaceutical ethics and am well-versed in a number of different ethical perspectives. I wish to help others answer ethical questions of varying complexity, and, if desired, to operate within a particular ethical paradigm to provide solutions. I particularly wish to help college students and other young people address the moral dilemmas they face, while maintaining a non-judgmental and welcoming atmosphere.

Experience in the area

I have taken numerous courses in ethics and am continuing to apply and expand my knowledge as I pursue advanced degrees leading towards a career in pharmaceutical ethics, and as an educator. I have helped others in my personal life with their own ethical conundrums, and am glad to have been able to make a difference in the lives of those people with my knowledge and advice.

Organizations

Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society, Boy Scouts of America

Education/Credentials

Licensed Pharmacy Technician; B.S. degree in Chemistry (Biochemistry Emphasis).

Awards and Honors

Member of the Order of the Arrow (Honors Society of Scouting); consistently awarded Dean's Honors; National Merit Competition Finalist; IAAY State Award recipient.

What do you like about this subject?

Ethics is a thought-provoking field that requires us to examine what we believe, and fascinates me to no end.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I intend to get a degree in this field.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Most ethicists are not relativists, nor universalists.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

An argument exists (though it is not a very pragmatic one) which claims that being an ethicist is itself unethical, as it encourages people to not study ethics (a valuable life field) themselves.
