Meet Amy Reed, Our Student Pharmacist, along with Emily Burns, for July!

You already met Emily Burns in a previous posting. Now, we’d like to introduce you to Amy Reed who will also be here in the store the entire month of July, assisting patients and learning about the role our staff plays in meeting Plain City’s healthcare needs.

Amy is currently completing her fourth year at The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. She is very happy to be spending part of her summer here at Plain City Druggist and learning about the various aspects of life in an independent pharmacy.

Amy is also very excited to participate in the compounding of medications, since compounding is what really drew her into the profession in the first place.

Like all of the cool kids in high school, Amy participated in a scholarship pharmacy summer camp in 2005 at the University of Toledo. She was able to experience a week of pharmacy classes and shadowed the staff in a few local pharmacies, including those at a small, family-owned compounding pharmacy. The summer camp experience was Amy’s first, unique look into the life of a compounding pharmacist. At one point in time, the memory of this special, life-changing event is what drove her to complete a degree, as well as a plethora of exams in order to be accepted into the Doctor of Pharmacy program at OSU.

Previously, Amy worked as an intern for a pharmacy in Grove City where she came to love the community pharmacy setting. She currently works in a small, long-term, acute care hospital in central Columbus.

Like many of her classmates, Amy is not quite sure what her future in pharmacy will lead to, but she knows her career will definitely focus around direct patient care. She loves being able to communicate with patients and other healthcare professionals in order to offer the best patient care possible.

Amy is engaged to her boyfriend of 8 ½ years, Ryan Bible. After they marry next September, she hopes to practice as a licensed pharmacist in southern Florida.
