Maria Shepard is a second-year undergraduate student at The Ohio State University, where she is majoring in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Maria’s professional interests focus around healthcare and pharmaceuticals, because she aspires to attend medical or graduate school after her undergraduate studies. This summer, she will be interning with Vita Godec at Lenis Farmacevtika in Ljubljana as part of the AmCham program European Experience in The Green Heart of Europe. This company specializes in sourcing unlicensed pharmaceuticals, and Maria is eager to learn about a unique perspective of the pharmaceutical industry. Maria is Slovenian and she is very grateful for this opportunity to connect with her heritage.
