Brooke DeHaven, PharmDBrooke DeHaven, PharmD
Education: PharmD, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy
About me: I am from the small town of Honea Path, but I currently live in Anderson, SC with my husband, Raymond, and our sweet puppy, Milo. I attended Presbyterian College for my undergraduate studies and prerequisites and Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy for my doctorate of pharmacy. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, being crafty, and spending time with my church family. Throughout my academic and rotation experiences in school, I became interested in the oncology and emergency medicine pharmacy practices. I chose Self Regional Healthcare because of the experiences that I knew I would have here, but more importantly for the learning environment that I felt as a student here and while interviewing. I felt that all the preceptors and pharmacists genuinely want us to succeed and help us develop into the best pharmacists we could be.

Tamia Jones, PharmDTamia Jones, PharmD
Education: PharmD, University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy
About me: My professional interests include internal medicine and ambulatory care. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, weightlifting, and binge-watching some of my favorite 80s/90s sitcoms. (even some from the 70s!) My strong interest in the Self Regional pharmacy residency program was based on the diverse training opportunities offered which align with my career goals and interests. In addition to clinical opportunities, Self offers the development of presentation skills through the teaching/learning certificate to produce well-rounded pharmacy clinicians. When it came to my interview day, though virtual, I felt very welcomed and comfortable to the point where I did not even feel like I had been through an interview process.

Boone Seagle, PharmD
Education: PharmD, Medical University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy
About me: I am originally from Charleston, where I also had the pleasure of attending pharmacy school, at MUSC. I’ve enjoyed finding ways to bring my hobbies in Charleston to Greenwood, including discovering the annual BBQ & Blues festival, hiking and swimming at Lake Greenwood County Park, and social-distance-friendly activities like drive-in movies at Drive 25. Throughout rotations as a student, I gravitated toward the patient interaction of ambulatory care, but I have had a persistent interest in internal and emergency medicine, as well. I was drawn to the residency program at Self Regional Healthcare, where the role of pharmacy is expanding in a rural setting. This program has been very accommodating in order to optimize rotation and research opportunities to fit the career goals of the residents. I have felt very welcomed by all the SRH family at my new home in the Emerald City.

Education: PharmD, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy
About me: I am originally from Fountain Inn, South Carolina. I received my doctorate in pharmacy at Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy after earning a bachelor degree in chemistry at the University of South Carolina. I chose to pursue a PGY1 residency at Self Regional Healthcare because of the instant connection with preceptors, team members, and the community that I felt during my time volunteering at vaccine clinics. I was even more drawn to our program during my interview when I was able to learn more about the rotations offered and opportunities to gain experience in emergency medicine and critical care. I am excited to become part of the Self team, gain experience as a clinician, and positively impact the lives of patients and their families. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family. Some of my favorite activities include camping, trail riding, boating, and wine tasting.
