The most rewarding thing about being a pharmacist is:
I love helping patients achieve better health all while getting to know them better. I get to see patients through their journey from cancer to remission to recovery and it’s so rewarding going through that process with them. I also love educating them and empowering them with issues like Diabetes so they can carry on in life. It’s all very rewarding
Who/what inspired you to be a pharmacist:
: I worked in a small pharmacy during high school and once read an article about pharmacy being one of the most trusted positions even more than a doctor or preacher because we are so easily accessible. The thought of holding peoples trust held a lot of weight with me and I was immediately drawn to pharmacy as a career. I also love to do mission work and I knew this was a field I could serve others with through missions. After reading that article, I knew pharmacy was a good fit for me!
