Why did you become a pharmacist?

“I followed in my mother’s footsteps. She has been a pharmacist for almost 40 years. At the end of high school, I had no clue what to list as my major. My parents suggested that I major in pre-pharmacy and worked toward a degree in pharmacy until I figured out something else. 

A couple of months later, I landed a job in a busy retail pharmacy and the rest is history!”

What interests or hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
“When I am not working as a pharmacist in Lancaster, SC, I can be found spending time at Lake Wateree, traveling with my family, and going to estate sales.”
