I am a Virginia native lucky enough to grow up only a couple hours south of Charlottesville in Danville. Some childhood memories become unclear as one grows older, but there’s one thing I can say for sure: All I ever wanted to be was a pharmacist. For my first career day in third grade other children showed up as astronauts, ballerinas, and football players, but I went as a pharmacist. I always loved the local pharmacy in my hometown and visiting the caring pharmacist that worked there. When I was 15, I got a job working at a pharmacy in Danville. By the time I was 30, I had spent time working for retail chains, independent small stores, hospitals, and mental health pharmacies. It didn’t take me long to realize that independent community pharmacy is where I wanted to be.
I gained a tremendous amount of experience at VCU – Medical College of Virginia Campus. Not only did I graduate with my PharmD degree, but I was fortunate enough to be accepted into 1 of 5 residency positions in the VCU Community Pharmacy Practice Residency Program. Being a pharmacist doesn’t require a residency. However, it was important to me to seek advanced training to be on the cutting edge of pharmacy practice in order to better serve my patients with the most innovative patient care services around.
Helping improve people’s health and serving the general public are very rewarding activities for me. I invite you to come experience our new, state-of-the-art facility.
