“Pharmacy has been a natural extension for me to be involved in the lives of others, helping take care of their needs, being a part of their lives, and lending a hand whenever needed. It is fun, enjoyable, and relaxing to be able to meet face to face with our customers, discuss their needs and medical issues, offer solutions, and develop relationships at the same time. I have always thrived on getting to know people, and helping them meet their needs. Taking care of people is what we do best!”
