When patients come first, they live longer, fuller lives. Our five-year survival rate for patients with metastatic cancer is nearly five times greater than the national rate. See the data and learn what the gift of more time means to the people we care for.
I have been a pharmacy tech for over 20 years, working in environments from big box retail and hometown corner drug store to hospital and clinic. I became nationally certified through the PTCB in 2001 and maintain 20 credit hours of continuing education every two years.
My role includes managing all operations of the medication dispensary, which includes filling prescriptions, inventory management, medication compliance and insurance billing and claims. I admix chemotherapy for administration in the office and initiate prior authorizations and financial assistance.
I am blessed to be in a position to help others, especially during difficult times in their lives. If I can help to relieve the stress of one patient, for even one moment of this journey, then I have succeeded.
My husband Jeremy and I have two beautiful daughters, Jori and Lainey, as well as two dogs: Cotton, our golden lab, and Oscar, our boxer. We enjoy gardening, camping and learning/practicing how to be survivalists.
I am a Chicago native and Chicago Blackhawks fanatic! I am also a Blesie Tree Foundation board member and really enjoy finding creative ways to pay it forward.
