Reason for starting
People desire that hometown feeling of the “local” drug store to get their prescriptions, ask medical questions and investigate and consider over the counter, holistic and other therapies. I enjoy working with patients and caregivers on helping people best manage their own best health and also make “customized medications” (compounded Rxs)

Biggest Success
Helping patients every day!

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
Navigating through all of the regulatory requirements, permits, etc

Who is your most important role model?
My Dad who owned a paving business during his career. Also independent pharmacy owners – Theresa Tolle and Barbara Switzler locally who have blazed the trail for other small business (and women-owned) pharmacies.
