About this Website
I created this website to help community pharmacists:
better understand the legal, third-party compliance, and operational issues facing their practice
by providing them the tools they need to improve efficiency and quality, and
by helping them return to patient care while remaining profitable.
While there are plenty of sites out there focusing on various aspects of the clinical side of pharmacy, there weren't really any sites out there to help pharmacists run a pharmacy.
It's no secret compliance and law is a boring but necessary part of practice. It's my aim to write about the subject in a more interesting and conversational way than other sites or resources out there, while bringing in my own and others' first-hand expriences.
I graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a Bachelor's of Science (Biology), from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Doctor of Pharmacy, and from West Texas A and M University with a Master's of Business Administration.
I've worked as a pharmacy manager in the chain, long-term care, and health-system outpatient settings. I've learned a lot along the way, seen a lot of things done well (and not so well), made mistakes, and also made drastic and lasting improvements in those pharmacies.
More recently, I served as a pharmacy project manager for a large health-system and took on everything from finance and regulatory compliance to launching new service lines. In this role, I also helped with the standardization of compliance and operations for roughly 70 retail pharmacies nationwide. That gave me the ability to dig much deeper into compliance and law than I had ever been able to do on the front lines.
I am currently working as a medical writer and have written continuing education, trade publications, consumer health articles, and licensing exam prep courses.
