Today I wanted to share a different type of post. I wanted to take you into my every day life and show you insight into my daily job as a pharmacist. Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE being a blogger, but I believe that God placed me in a career that I was made for.

I started working in a pharmacy way back in 2006 during the summer before I started college. An elder at my church owned a (cute) community pharmacy on the square in my hometown. He was kind enough to offer me a job and the rest is pretty much history. I fell in LOVE with pharmacy. But more than that, I fell in love with the patients that I got to help on a daily basis.

There’s something to be said for community pharmacy, because it’s just that…a community. We become more like family. Here’s what being a pharmacist means to me:

A shoulder to cry on

Being a pharmacist is one of the most rewarding professions I know of. I get to be the person that others come to for advice. I have seen people bring in prescriptions from all walks of life…from antibiotics to chemo drugs. Because my mom died with cancer, I believe I can be that shoulder to cry on should one of my patients (or family members) be diagnosed with cancer.

A friend to talk to

Sometimes people just need some to talk to. I have the distinct ability to be able to communicate with my patients about how or why they are being prescribed a certain medication. I get to help people discover ways to better themselves. It’s so amazing to see someone smile when you help them understand medication.

An advocate to lean on

Navigating an illness can be difficult, because I’ve known this firsthand seeing my mom and my grandma sick. However, as a pharmacist, I can be an advocate for my patients to lean on. I’m only a phone call away, and they feel comfortable leaning on me.

As a pharmacist, scrubs have become my go-to outfit! I’m wearing the Smitten Scrubs in my photos. Can we say flattering?! Landau has become the brand for me due to the high quality and durability. When I’m confident in my appearance, that gives me confidence in my ability to be a great pharmacist. I love my patients and my job is very important to me.

Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope everyone is having a good week. I’ve really been trying not to arrive at work so sleepy. It can be hard, because I am only home for around 12 hours each day. I have LONG work days as a pharmacist, so I wanted to share five ways that can help you ensure you have a good day.

ONE. Dress comfortably.

Nothing can ruin a day more than being uncomfortable in your outfit. For me, I have had several different rotations and jobs with different dress codes. While it may not work for everyone, I wanted to share my experience with my favorite scrub company, Landau. These scrubs are super comfy, come in lots of colors/styles, and wash so easily. My friends at Landau were kind enough to send me a pair in my favorite color, hot pink! I threw on my white coat as well. #ScrubLove

TWO. Wear appropriate shoes.

Hands down the most important thing I can tell you about working on your feet all day is to wear shoes that are supportive. Luckily, I can wear tennis shoes to work! Even if you can’t wear tennis shoes, try to stay away from high heels with little support.

THREE. Accessorize simply.

I’m the girl that would wear super long, dangling earrings if I could but that doesn’t make sense in my job. I am constantly on the phone talking, so I had to find a pair of studs that are small enough not to hurt while I’m talking all the time. This Kendra Scott pair is my favorite.

FOUR. Wake up with green tea.

I LOVE to have a cup of hot green tea first thing in the morning. It really helps wake me up and get going for the day. Throw it in a stainless steel mug to keep it warm all morning while you get ready ;)

FIVE. Light a candle.

I’m on such a rose kick lately. This scrub color reminds me of a bright pink rose, which is so fitting. I have been lighting my rose candle in the mornings while I check emails, my blog, and social media before heading to the pharmacy.

There you have it. These are my five things I do each morning to ensure I have a good day. Is there something you do that I should add to my routine? Comment below!
