Director of Pharmacy Operations
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
What do you do at Guardian Pharmacy of Wisconsin?
I oversee the internal pharmacy operations in the pharmacy to ensure that our clients are served in a timely and accurate manner. I manage our pharmacist team and handle all regulatory affairs related to our pharmacy practice to maintain compliance with state and federal regulations. My goal is 100% satisfaction related to our pharmacy services and complete trust in our ability to provide the best pharmacy services possible.
What is your background?
I was born and raised in West Allis, WI- less than 2 miles from the present location of our pharmacy. I attended the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy and began my pharmacy career working for an independent retail owner who owned 2 stores. During my time with him, I helped grow his business to seven locations. My most recent position before joining Guardian Pharmacy was as a manager for a very busy retail/clinic pharmacy for a large local healthcare system. During my time in retail, some of these stores had a small amount of long-term-care business, which I enjoyed. I have been at Guardian Pharmacy of WI for 17 years and have loved every minute of my long-term-care career.
What are the values that drive you?
I consider myself a very dedicated, hard worker who does whatever it takes to meet the needs of our clients. I believe complete honesty is a must and strive to always deliver what is promised.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I love spending time with my family (we have two teenage children). As a family, we enjoy cheering on the Milwaukee Brewers. We have traveled to several other ballparks to see the Brewers play. We enjoy visiting zoos in other parts of the country. We also enjoy kayaking and spending time with extended family. When I have some alone time, I love reading mystery and detective fiction.
