Dr. Sease received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy in 2003. She then completed a primary care pharmacy practice residency at the William Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center in 2004.

Upon completion of her residency, Dr. Sease joined the faculty of her alma mater where she taught for five years and practiced within the primary care clinics of the Dorn VA. In 2009, she joined the faculty of the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy where she taught a variety of topics including evidence based medicine, anticoagulation, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and cirrhosis among others.

From January 2013 until June 2019, Dr. Sease served as an administrator within the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy, eventually serving as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. She served in this capacity until returning to the University of South Carolina in July 2019 to begin her current role. As an administrator, Dr. Sease has experience overseeing various aspects of the professional program including assessment, accreditation, curriculum, experiential education, student progression, academic integrity, interprofessional education, and faculty development.

Dr. Sease is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist, a Certified Diabetes Educator, and a Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist. She has published numerous journal articles and book chapters. In 2014, she was elected a Fellow of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy and, in 2017, completed the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Academic Leadership Fellows Program.
