A pharmacy degree can introduce you to a variety of new careers—careers you didn’t even know were a thing. From behind the counter to boots on the ground, you’ll have the opportunity to make medical advancements in your community and at the hospital bedside. It’s the kind of work that can make a real impact on the future of healthcare and the lives of real patients.

After graduation, I worked in a community pharmacy. Then, through a connection from school, I landed at EPIC Pharmacies, where I created (and now lead) the organization’s first Clinical Programs Department in the implementation and expansion of clinical programs and services.
