Description

Embarking upon a path to becoming a pharmacist is arduous but very fulfilling. The profession requires hard work, life-long learning, and the understanding that the work is about the patient first, not the business. There are several directions an individual can pursue as a pharmacist making the career choice extremely rewarding. Currently, I am an Ambulatory Outpatient Retail Pharmacist at Gulf Coast Medical Center. My journey began at a local community college and continued at Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences where I pursued a degree in biology. This degree provided me with an advantage as I attended NSU College of Pharmacy. Within my presentation, I will discuss helpful tips or advice I wish my younger self would have known along with an interesting story or two. I will also share what I look for in a colleague. The journey to become a pharmacist is a roller-coaster, but the end is worthwhile. If this is the career path you desire, I wish you the best and look forward to working with you in one aspect of pharmacy or another.
