Jennifer K. Meza
Project Keepsake Chair
Jennifer Meza is a fourth year Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate at the Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy in College Station, TX. Jennifer was born and raised in Houston, TX and completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition. It was during her undergraduate years that she was introduced to SNPhA by members who encouraged her to be involved in the professional development activities and service opportunities they hosted. She was inspired by their efforts to promote diversity in pharmacy and empowering students to make an impact through service.
Upon beginning pharmacy school, it was no question that Jennifer would join SNPhA. Her passion for the organization led her to serve as Power to End Stroke Co-Chair, President-Elect, and President of Texas A&M’s Chapter. Her leadership roles allowed her to cultivate relationships with community leaders, who she collaborated with to impact thousands of patients during her year as Chapter President. She was also involved in creating an interprofessional bond between the College of Pharmacy and other Texas A&M Health Science schools, such as medicine and nursing. These student and community partnerships are what inspired her to want to be involved in the coordination of care on an interdisciplinary team - to reach a greater number of patients, especially those that may lack resources or access to health care. Jennifer is also an active member of several organizations including Phi Lambda Sigma, American Pharmacists Association, and Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity.
Jennifer’s passion lies in serving the growing minority population through organizing and participating in impactful events. Her active role in the community as a student has encouraged her to continue serving the public in this capacity as a future pharmacist. Outside of school, Jennifer enjoys traveling to new destinations, spending time with her family, and exploring new places with her beloved mini eskimo, Churri.
As Project Keepsake Chair, Jennifer is committed to increasing awareness to the various types of organ donation and transplant opportunities that are available. She is excited at the potential to further expand the donation and transplant community through education in order to improve health outcomes and to increase student involvement in this movement. She looks forward to what SNPhA can do for the community this year as we continue our journey to serving the underserved.
