Hill Country Apothecary, Pharmacist
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy the unique role I serve in the community. Being able to act as a first line of health information for patients seeking advice not only on medications, but also chronic disease, nutrition, and healthcare provider recommendations is an important role to me. I love having the opportunity to educate patients and with the dynamic nature of our practice, I am constantly being educated myself.
Why did you pursue a career in medicine?
I have always enjoyed communicating and educating others, and I feel healthcare is an ideal industry in which to utilize those interests. In my experience, in both a large hospital and community setting, I have found that we are most proficient in treating patients when they are right in front of us, yet our ability to treat lacks once they leave our doors. Working to bridge those gaps and increase the continuity of care between health systems is a challenge I enjoy taking on!
What’s special and unique about your practice?
We are a wellness pharmacy. Our goal is to recreate the idea of the traditional drugstore, one that was central to the community and where patients came to consult their “druggist” about health issues in a face-to-face setting. Everything we do is patient-centered, from the tailored compounded medications we provide, to the individualized nutrition consultations and education seminars we conduct.
Whats your idea of an ideal date?
Well, I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy being wined and dined. That’s not to say sparks won’t fly without a horse-drawn carriage to pick me up, but going the extra mile doesn’t hurt chances. Generally, good food and good conversation are what I seek out on an ideal date.
What do you look for in a romantic partner?
I’m looking for someone that loves to travel, is funny, energetic, and shares my interests. Being able to weave quotes from Back to the Future and 90’s rap songs into everyday conversation will set my heart afire. Also, must love dogs.
