About | Disclaimer

I first started working in a pharmacy when I was 16.  My first duties were taking out the trash and cleaning the floors.  I eventually moved up to the position of pharmacy technician and that is when I decided I wanted to be a pharmacist.

Pharmacy Education

I attended South Dakota State University School of Pharmacy.  I earned by Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science in 1999 and graduated with my Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2001.

I am currently licensed in South Dakota and Wyoming.

Working in the Pharmacy

I have been working in Community Pharmacy ever since graduation.  I love being one of the most accessible health care providers.  I enjoy fielding customer’s questions and helping them understand their medication.

Pharmacy is changing though, some days it is so busy just operating a pharmacy that I don’t get to spend quality time with patients talking about their medication.  That is why I’ve put together this website, providing information about medications that is easily accessible.

Please Contact me with anything pharmacy related you’d like to know more about.  I cannot give specific advice, but will be happy to explain anything I can.

This website is designed to give you information you can discuss with your healthcare provider.  This is not specific information and I will not give specific advice to you from this website.  ALWAYS discuss changes in medications or lifestyle with your Doctor first.

Medications are lifesaving and have contributed to people living longer, more  healthy lives.  However, medications do come with risks and I believe diet and lifestyle changes are not always stress enough.  Many medications can be reduced or eliminated with simple lifestyle changes.  I also hope to provide you with ideas about diet and exercise changes you can talk to your healthcare provider about.

    Hi. I just ordered a new accu check lancet from Amazon. I am not familiar with lancets and this will be my first time using one.

    It came with a drum. Do I load this drum, or should it have came with a drum already ready to go?
