Pharmacist in Charge, OrthoGeorgia Pharmacy
3708 Northside Drive, Macon
THE MISSION OF ORTHOGEORGIA PHARMACY: Our pharmacy is committed to providing the best services and products that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations to improve their health and wellness. We will constantly strive for continuous improvements in our processes, product quality and on-time delivery.
YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED THAT: OrthoGeorgia Pharmacy is a full-service retail pharmacy that offers services to patients citywide. We are not just an in-house pharmacy. We also offer free citywide delivery and free bubble packing of patients’ medications.
THE BEST ADVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED: Delegate. Hire people you can trust to share your work ethic and that are just as passionate about the work as you are.
THE MOST GRATIFYING PART OF MY JOB: Helping patients with their medication needs and improving their quality of life. Also, I love getting to know my patients on a more personal level. They are not just numbers to me, they are friends.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT RIGHT NOW? I’m excited to be part of a company that is on the cutting edge of healthcare and making advances that didn’t seem possible 10 years ago.
ADVICE FOR WOMEN WANTING TO START THEIR OWN BUSINESS: Find a business idea that you are passionate about, and strive to put your own personal stamp on it so that people will come to identify you with the business. Also, be willing to put in the time and the effort to make it the very best.
I ADMIRE WOMEN WHO: Excel in balancing both home life and business life without either one suffering.
