A Prescription For A Brand New Career

Jun 02, 2014

Kathy Myers is beginning the externship portion of her pharmacy technician education this term– and she is eager to put her knowledge to good use in her chosen field.  Kathy’s enthusiasm for her new career was extremely high during her admissions interview and it has never wavered.

After more than twenty years of working in manufacturing, Kathy decided it was time to pursue a career that had interested her for many years.  “I was always fascinated by the patients around me at my doctor visits,” said Kathy.  “I wondered what kinds of medications they were taking, where those medications were made, and I was equally fascinated as to how they obtained their medications.  For me…the pharmacy was a place of wonder.  After years of being stuck in a ”j-o-b,” I realized it was time for me to make a huge career change.”

“I had just finished putting my daughter thru her master’s degree, actually,” Kathy said when asked about enrolling.  “I decided it was my turn and here I am, finishing my pharmacy technician training.  I am so excited to be finishing my college training in the very field I have always been so fascinated.  This is a dream come true!  Everyone at American National University has been so supportive and helpful.  I was a bit nervous at first, but everyone made this very comfortable for me.  I cannot wait to work in my new career!”

Student Kathy Myers of the Lexington Campus worked in the manufacturing industry for more than 20 years and is now studying to become a pharmacy technician.
