I value my freedom. Focus on being my best. And believe in working together towards a common goal. As a pharmacist at Kaiser Permanente, I put these beliefs into practice. Here, I am able to do what I was trained to do—dispense advice along with medicine. Kaiser Permanente trusts my instincts and my abilities, enabling me to do what’s right for our patients. I know that if I can improve their quality of life, I’ve succeeded in my mission. The same mission shared by Kaiser Permanente. If you’re ready to practice pharmacy the way you’ve always intended, this is the place to put your beliefs into practice.
