What drew you to pharmacy in the first place? 

I always knew I wanted to work in health sciences, and pharmacy offered flexibility and diversity of practice settings. I love that we get to work collaboratively with our healthcare colleagues to improve our patients’ quality of life.

How are you inspired by women in pharmacy? Do you have a role model within the industry?

I have been privileged to know and work with many amazing women in pharmacy throughout my career. They inspire me with their commitment to the profession, their colleagues, and the patients they care for. Often they’re juggling multiple responsibilities inside and outside work, but always manage to be present and provide support, guidance, and a laugh when needed.

Thank you for reading our profile on Kylee! We appreciate Kylee’s support of PSS.
