Meet Our July Student Pharmacist, Emily Burns.

This month, just like in June, we have two student pharmacists from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy doing their rotations with us here in the drugstore. But this month, we have two ladies, Emily and Amy, instead of the two gentlemen, David and Nick, who worked with us in June.

First up, we’d like to introduce you to Emily Burns.

Although born in Columbus, Emily grew up in the small village of Norwich, Ohio, located a few miles east of Zanesville. She attended John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio, where she majored in biochemistry.

From the time Emily had the opportunity to shadow a few pharmacists at the local hospital while in high school, she knew she wanted to go to pharmacy school. Her parents urged her to experience other settings first, however, so she tried her hand at clerical work in a physician’s office and quality control in a chemical laboratory in order to help her decide that pharmacy was the right career for her.

After being accepted at Ohio State, Emily worked at a small, independent pharmacy in New Concord, Ohio where she learned the ropes to become a pharmacy technician and cashier.

Currently, Emily works in retail pharmacy in Columbus and she feels that she truly learns something new from her customers every day. Emily enjoys working in the community because she loves getting to know her patients and being able to educate them on their medications.

After graduation, Emily looks forward to joining her fiance (husband, by that point!) in sunny Columbia, South Carolina where she will pursue a career in community pharmacy.

Outside of her pharmacy school life, Emily enjoys baking, reading, and traveling. Overall, she’s excited for the opportunity to be back in an independent pharmacy and to talk with the staff and customers of Plain City Druggist.

Don’t hesitate to ask Emily any questions if you see her around the pharmacy this month!
