After making some visits and phone calls to local colleges, she began her journey with all of the prerequisites: biology, chemistry, math, etc. It wasn’t easy, but by using her resources, paying for tutors, working, and producing side income, she
finished her undergraduate degree.
Motivated to keep going, Christina applied for and was accepted in to the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy. It was during her 2nd year in pharmacy school that she was diagnosed with dyslexia. This was the point where she realized that there was never an excuse not to finish. She would not stop until she fulfilled her dreams! While “it wasn’t always fun and games,” the professors wanted to see their students succeed, and to this day, they have continued to guide her through her career. The College of Pharmacy staff was interested in the path she had chosen, and allowed her the freedom to choose rotations that would best fit her needs.
Currently, Christina works with Rite-Aid. She aspires to use her management experience and work toward becoming a Pharmacy Manager in the next couple of years. She “would love nothing more” than to lead a team of great Pharmacists and technicians to continue serving the patients.
