Shayna has worked at an independent pharmacy as a technician in Sioux City since 2016 and now works as a pharmacy intern at Hy-Vee Pharmacy in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She also works, on an as needed basis, as a research assistant for Creighton University's Center for Health Services Research and Patient Safety department since 2016.

She thinks being a part of this organization is a great way to network with other students and pharmacists, while also learning more about the field of pharmacy.
