Pharmacy Technician, Immunizer
Tell us a bit about yourself (where are you from, siblings, what do you like to do in your free time?)
I grew up nearby in Oregon, WI. I am the oldest of 4 siblings. My 2 brothers and sister remain in the area with their loved ones and we enjoy catching up weekly at Sunday night dinner at our parent’s house. My husband, Chris, and I live in Oregon with our 3 children, Keira, KayLeigh, and Kaden. We enjoy visiting National Parks, camping, having family game nights, and soaking up the Florida sunshine!
How long have you been working at the pharmacy?
I had the pleasure of joining the MHFP team in December of 2021. Before MHFP, I enjoyed 20+ years at the local independent pharmacy in Oregon. Taking the best care possible of amazingly kind patients has been a passion of mine the entire 22 years I’ve been in pharmacy.
What do you like most about your job?
Any chance I get to help our customers enjoy a great experience at the pharmacy, fills my cup. Everything from helping patients save money on their medications, to helping find the perfect gift in the beautiful gift department, to helping patients get answers from their medical team or insurance company that they were struggling to get otherwise…really any positive experience with our patients makes my day. I enjoy working hard to help surpass our patient’s expectations in every way possible. When we hear we have done just that, it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world! Another greatest feeling in the world…the connection and team atmosphere shared with my co-workers at MHFP because they are some of the very best teammates out there, I feel so incredibly lucky every single day!
What is your favorite product at the pharmacy?
I love the Ortho Molecular product line! If I had to choose 1 product, it would be the Ortho Biotic capsules. The 7 probiotic strains in each capsule are great for promoting healthy gut microflora, protecting intestinal integrity, and boosting immune function. I can feel the difference when I run out of them or forget to take them in my busy life.
What do you like to do in health/to stay healthy? (cooking, exercise, etc)
My family and I enjoy making time to hike, go on nightly family walks with our 2 small dogs, or head out on a bike ride together in the warm weather. We find the nightly walks to be the perfect time to share our highs and lows from the day. We also enjoy playing in the backyard with the kids. Anything from practicing baseball and softball, to goofing around on the trampoline, to playing kickball or frisbee. If it gets us moving while having FUN, then it’s a win in my book!
What do you like about the Mount Horeb community/area?
I love how kind and down to Earth the community of Mount Horeb and the surrounding area has been. The folks that stop into the pharmacy make the days bright and so rewarding. The smiles, fun banter, yummy treats, and kind words make all of our hearts swell.
Anything else – tell us something fun/awesome/amazing! (movie/motivating quote, favorite movie)
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” Steve Jobs
