Anna Grace Weiland, PharmD
Education: PharmD, University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy
About me: I am from Columbia, SC and completed my undergrad and Doctor of Pharmacy at the University of South Carolina. My main interests include internal medicine, infectious disease and cardiology. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. On the weekends, I love to explore new hiking spots with my dog, Austin. I chose Self Regional because the preceptors are amazing and everyone is truly so friendly and willing to help you succeed. I knew this would be a great environment to grow as a pharmacist and achieve my goals.


Sara Beth Sears, PharmD
Education: PharmD, University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy
About me: I grew up in Abbeville County and currently live in the small town of Due West, SC. I attended the University of South Carolina for my undergraduate degree and received my doctorate from the USC College of Pharmacy. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, working out, playing tennis and cooking. My passion for pharmacy started after shadowing at Self Regional as a high school student. After completing several clinical rotations throughout the hospital as a 4th year pharmacy student, I knew I wanted to continue learning from the pharmacy staff here after graduation as part of the residency program. The supportive and encouraging learning environment, in combination with diverse training opportunities, made this program the best fit for me. This program genuinely cares about its residents and wants to help develop us into the best pharmacists we can be. While I still have varying interests in the clinical pharmacy world, I am confident that with the guidance of my preceptors and the variety of experiences offered throughout the year, I will find my niche.


Yaredis Emmanuelli Aquino, PharmD
Education: PharmD, School of Pharmacy, University of Puerto Rico – Medical Sciences Campus
About me: I am originally from Arecibo, Puerto Rico. I obtained my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the School of Pharmacy of the University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences Campus. Some of my areas of interest in the practice are Oncology, Infectious Diseases and Internal Medicine. The Pharmacy Residency Program at Self Regional Healthcare captured my attention for its variety of opportunities and rotations in different areas of pharmacy, and its focus on educating future colleagues. In addition, this program stood out in the interview process since, although the process was online, I felt welcomed and had the opportunity of receiving some southern hospitality. Outside of pharmacy, I like spending quality time with my family, watching series and variety shows and attending church.


Trevoria Dendy, PharmD
Education: PharmD, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy
About me: I am from Clinton, but currently live in Cross Hill, SC. I attended Presbyterian College for my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degree and Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy for my Doctorate of Pharmacy. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, cooking, reading and watching movies. During my time in graduate school, I grew interest in Internal Medicine and Ambulatory Care. Before graduating, I was able to experience the environment at Self Regional Healthcare, which drew me to this program. I knew that I would be immersed in an exceptional learning environment that would improve my abilities as a clinical pharmacist. During my 4th year rotations here and during the interview process, the preceptors and pharmacists were welcoming and made me feel confident that they would provide the best possible PGY1 experience.


Marshall Hardee, PharmD
Education: PharmD, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy
About me: I am from Conway, SC and currently live in Waterloo, SC near Lake Greenwood. I received my undergraduate degree from Clemson University and my PharmD from Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy. After graduating from Clemson and before attending pharmacy school, I completed a transcontinental run from San Diego, CA to Myrtle Beach, SC of about 2,700 miles in 135 days. My personal interests include beekeeping, woodworking and boating on Lake Greenwood with my girlfriend Jenna, alongside her sassy Pomeranian named Mackie. My professional interests are primarily in Emergency Medicine, but I believe that being well-rounded as a pharmacist is the first step to being an excellent one. I chose Self Regional Healthcare because of recommendations from previous residents, an excellent APPE rotation here during my P4 year, and the great interactions I had with the preceptors and pharmacists that work here. Also, having a large resident class is a benefit for those, like me, who work well with others and appreciate a sounding board for ideas.
