Please Meet Our Student Pharmacist for August, Ben Coles.

We are so lucky to have a student pharmacist again this month from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. Ben Coles is a fourth year student who will graduate in May 2017 and then go on to practice as a pharmacist. In this posting, we’d like to introduce you to Ben.

Here is what Ben has to say about himself:

Hello! My name is Ben Coles and I am a fourth year student at The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. I grew up in Georgetown, Ohio (a small town in southern Ohio) until I was 15, at which time my family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. I finished high school in Utah and completed my undergraduate degree in exercise sciences at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah.

Before starting at BYU, I completed a two year, full-time, mission for my church in Samoa in the South Pacific. Upon returning from Samoa, I met my wife and, after dating for a while, we were married in 2011. We have two children, both boys–Davis who is 3 and Griffin who is 1.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family at the great metro parks around Columbus and go on road trips to all the super places surrounding Columbus and Ohio. I am a religious reader of a theme park blog where I indulge my love for roller coasters and theme parks.

I have worked as a pharmacy intern for Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio for the past three years. Before starting pharmacy school, I worked for Rite Aid Pharmacy in Provo, Utah for three years, as well. After graduation, I plan on completing a two year residency in hospital pharmacy administration and hope to become a hospital pharmacy manager.

I am excited to spend the month of August at Plain City Druggist and get to know all the great patients!
