My Pharmacist Story:

I have been working at Goodrich Pharmacy since I was 16 years old. I started as customer service and went to school and became a pharmacist. I have seen pharmacy change through the years but the focus has not changed, patients always come first. I am proud to be a pharmacist and proud to be a “Goodrich” pharmacist as I think we provide the best care. 😉

My Story:

I first became interested in Pharmacy late in high school. I worked at a chain pharmacy throughout college and decided to work somewhere different after I graduated. I have worked at Goodrich as long as I have been licensed and it is hard to imagine working elsewhere. The pharmacists and staff at Goodrich are constantly working to do what’s best for their patients such as offering new services in the pharmacy. In addition to dispensing medications, I set up appointments with patients to discuss their medications and make sure everything is working well for them. I also help teach pharmacy students and the resident pharmacist at Goodrich.

My Story:

I first became interested in Pharmacy while working at a pharmacy during my early college years. I have worked at independent pharmacies since my first pharmacy experience and I have always known that this is where I wanted to work. I feel very lucky to work for Goodrich Pharmacy which puts the patient’s interests first. As part of my responsibilities at Goodrich, I see patients for Medication Check-Up visits and I talk to patients about optimizing use of their medications. I make sure that all of their medication use is safe, effective, and appropriate. I am also the primary supervisor for the pharmacy resident at Goodrich Pharmacy and I help teach pharmacy students that do a rotation at Goodrich Pharmacy.
