Provide a brief bio of your career.
Graduated North Dakota State University 1978 BS Pharm moved to Florida to work retail after a few years with Shoppers Drug Mart. I started opening 5 independent pharmacies called My Pharmacist, which included IV, Oxygen, DME and then learned in 1989 to compound respiratory medications and started MP TotalCare. I have served as Chairman of the Board of International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding since its inception. I founded AnazaoHealth in 1997 (which I just sold in 2015). In my career I have owned more than 10 compounding pharmacies and numerous retail pharmacies.
Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.
Pharmacists have always been the most trusted profession by the American public. This has been shaken by people that have influence on our profession but are not compounding pharmacists. We understand how important compounding is to our patients and I am uniquely qualified to lead the organization during the next few years. I have extensive experience in many aspects of compounding, the leadership experience and the courage to face the fight whether it be with the FDA, Congress, Pharma, or PBMs. We can take the right message to the people: we are here to serve.
Tell us how compounded pharmaceuticals have helped you, someone you know, or how you have helped someone as a practicing compounding pharmacist. Help us protect your continued access to pharmacy compounding!
