The Iowa Pharmacy Association would like to welcome Emmeline Paintsil, PharmD, MSLD, BCPS, as the association's new Director of Professional Affairs.

Emmeline Paintsil is a board-certified clinical pharmacist and artist with a passion for patient advocacy, lifelong learning, and making a profound impact in the lives of others. She is a proud alumna of Drake University, earning her PharmD in 2018 and a Masters in Leadership Development in 2020. Post-graduation, Emmeline completed a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a teaching certificate program with the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

With a unique and non-traditional background in pharmacy, Emmeline has helped the lives of patients, students, and healthcare professionals in various academic and clinical settings across the Midwest and East Coast. In her most recent position, she worked as a Kidney/Pancreas and Heart Transplant Clinical Pharmacy Specialist at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Emmeline dubs herself a "passionate PharmD, creative visionary, and purpose-driven leader" who applies her organizational leadership training to advance the pharmacy profession and empower healthcare professionals. When she is not going above and beyond for her patients and students, she enjoys photography, writing poetry, and cooking for friends and family.
Emmeline shares: "I am thrilled to be joining the IPA team. The opportunity to serve IPA members and the pharmacy profession and work alongside such dedicated servant leaders and passionate professionals is an honor. I look forward to meeting the IPA membership, IPA partners, and growing and learning in my role as Director of Professional Affairs."

Emmeline will start at IPA on Monday, July 19, 2021. Please help us welcome her back to Iowa!
