Please Welcome Sarah Jicomelli Our Student Pharmacist for the Month of July.


This month, we are joined at Plain City Druggist by Sarah Jicomelli, a fourth-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Sarah will graduate in May 2023 with her PharmD degree and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist. Sarah will be with Tayler and the gang here in Plain City throughout July, so please stop by and meet her while she is here.

Here is what Sarah tells us about herself:

Hello! My name is Sarah Jicomelli and I am currently a fourth year student at The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy, planning to graduate in May of 2023. I am very excited to be helping at Plain City Druggist for the month of July and learning more about independent pharmacy and the incredible impact it can make on communities.

I am originally from Canonsburg, a small town right outside of Pittsburgh, PA, but I have been in Columbus since 2015 when I started my undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University.

I started college knowing I wanted to be a pharmacist because of my cousin who introduced me to the profession when I was a sophomore in high school. At that time, she had just graduated from University of Pittsburgh College of Pharmacy and accepted a position as a community pharmacist. She urged me to look into the career due to the blend of two of my favorite things: science and working with people! I took her advice, and fell in love with pharmacy and the many paths you can take with a PharmD degree – I even did my senior project on the topic!

My major in undergrad was Pharmaceutical Sciences, and in my sophomore year I started working as a pharmacy technician at Giant Eagle Pharmacy. I had such an incredible time learning from the pharmacists, my coworkers, and the patients, so when it was time to choose a pharmacy to work as an intern at the beginning of pharmacy school, I knew I had to stay at Giant Eagle Pharmacy and continue learning! I still work there and am very grateful for all of the positive experiences I have had and continue to have.

While in pharmacy school, I have been an active member of APhA-ASP as both a member of the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) committee and as the International Vice President. With both of these positions I was able to bring in international and domestic pharmacists to speak about their practice, help advocate for certain health campaigns like Tobacco Awareness, and host blood drives. In addition, I also worked closely with the Class of 2023 officers as the Social Coordinator and sat as the Social Chair on the Interprofessional Council’s Sustainability Committee.

After graduation, I would love to move to Chicago and work as a community pharmacist. I have been so inspired over the years at the amount of reach a community pharmacist can have in a patient’s life, and I really want to be that positive influence for people.

Outside of pharmacy, my passion is music! I love to play guitar and go see my favorite artists in concert. Every summer, my dad and I make it a point to go see our favorite band at least once – no matter where they are playing around the country. He is my favorite concert buddy and we have seen them over 15 times together!
