I have been in pharmacy for the last 3 years and definitely feel it is where I belong. I love the relationship I’ve built with my coworkers and even the nurses and patients I deal with on a regular basis. My husband and I recently moved to Dayton. I have 2 kitties, have played cello since 6 th grade, and love squirrels.



I have been in pharmacy for 6 years and enjoy taking care of our customers and their families.  I also enjoy spending time with family and traveling.



I have been a pharmacy technician for over 20 years. I have worked in many areas of pharmacy, but I love Long Term Care the most. I moved here from Michigan with my husband 3 years ago for his job. I love animals and I volunteer at a local animal shelter.

I’m Emily #2, otherwise known as “Rudy”. I have only been in pharmacy for a few months but absolutely love it! I love the team we have, it is truly like a family. In my free time I love hanging out with my husband and our two husky “fur babies”.



I have been with IRX for 5 years. What I enjoy most about working here is the staff. We all share a desire to serve our communities and care for people as if they were our own family. When I am not here I love spending time with my beautiful wife,Rachel and our lovely 3 children, and playing drums for Jesus!



I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 kids, teaching others how to be healthy and reading. My dream vacation: Go on a hike across New Zealand.



In 2006 I applied for a part time job in pharmacy, not knowing almost 12 years later I would still be in this field. I have learned many things from my amazing coworkers and the wonderful customers we serve. My wife and 2 children are grateful for what this
career has given us, and we continue to pray for the wellness of our community.
