Pursuing Doctorate of Pharmacy at the Wingate University School of Pharmacy in Wingate, North Carolina.
“Through the help of the biology department, advising and Dr. Buddy Lingle, I was able to prepare early in the classes I would need to take for pharmacy school. My teachers have always been very caring and willing to do anything to help me achieve my goal of getting accepted into pharmacy school. Being at High Point University I was able to get a pharmacy technician position in High Point during the school year where I met my mentor and was truly able to feel out the career. This experience reinforced my love for pharmacy and made me realize this career path is the right one for me.”
