Please Welcome Alexandra Shuey Our Student Pharmacist at Happy Druggist on Karl Road.


This month, we are joined at Happy Druggist on Karl Road by Alexandra Shuey a third-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Alexandra will graduate in May 2022 and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist. Alexandra will be with us for several months as she completes her rotation, so please stop by and meet her while she is in the store.

Here is what Alexandra tells us about herself:

Prior to pharmacy school, Alexandra worked as a chemist at an environmental chemistry company called Ohio Lumex for three years. There, she analyzed samples from power plant emissions for mercury, acid gases, etc. She started pharmacy school because she was interested in chemistry as well as in medicine and healthcare.

She currently interns at Giant Eagle Community Pharmacy (since September 2018), as well as The Ohio State University’s Medical Center Nuclear Pharmacy (since May 2019).

After graduation, she plans to pursue a career in Nuclear Pharmacy; however, she considers community pharmacy to be a good option, as well.

Alexandra’s goals for this rotation:

  • Observe the verification process and how to resolve drug-related issues.
  • Explore different aspects of running an independent community pharmacy (differences from chain pharmacies).
