Best part about pharmacy: Working and communicating with different people all day


"For the past 15 years I have thoroughly enjoyed my career as a community pharmacist.  Being a pharmacist has not only enabled me to work in three different provinces but has also allowed me to live and work in smaller communities where I have the opportunity to get to know the people who call or come into the store.  I became a Certified Diabetes Educator in 2009 and since that time I have been able to use my knowledge and skills to help people better understand and control their diabetes."
