First Day to Graduation Day

Updated: Jul 7, 2019




First picture: Here’s a woman on her high school graduation day. She’s been accepted to pharmacy school and can’t wait for the next chapter in life.


Here’s what you don’t see: she wasn’t the smartest or the bravest or the most confident. She had a big chip on her shoulder. She had self-doubt and anxiety about all of the unknowns.


But she had a chair with her name on it, waiting for her in the fall.



Pharmacy school was hard and awesome at the same rate and rhythm. She struggled with challenging courses. She didn’t know how to choose a pharmacy path. She had to overcome a feeling of not enough. She had to navigate hard relationships. She made 1000 mistakes and had to figure out how to learn from them. She could have used a mentor to help her through all of it.


She had to overcome her own obstacles with one goal: to graduate as the best version of herself.


And her career has taken her here: to find you.


To help you make the most out of pharmacy school. To help prepare you and excite you about life after graduation.


Second picture: Here’s a woman on her pharmacy school graduation day. She’s thinking, “No one can take this from me.” Now, after dedicating her career to helping students and residents, she’s ready to help you get from your first day to graduation day. Because she’s been there. Because she sees you. And pharmacy needs you.

This is what pharmacy in the 21st century looks like: a really fun roller coaster.
