Jessica's favorite part about working for hometown pharmacy is, "I love to help our patients and their families with their health and wellness. Hometown has been a great supporter of this! I think it is absolutely awesome that we have so many pharmacists that collaborate together to educate each other to help patients get healthier and be proactive with their health. Hometown wants to be part of the solution for the declining health of our communities.
She was nominated by a loyal customer who wrote, "Where should I start? Jessica was "my" pharmacist at Shopko on Northland Ave in Appleton for many years. When Shopko closed, my prescriptions transferred to Pick/Save. When I picked up my meds before cataract surgery I knew, not a "good fit." When I learned Hometown was opening and Jessica was the pharmacist, it was easy to move my scripts/insurance. I am 74, have thyroid, HTN, meds. I have cancer/stable and osteopenia. When I get OTC meds, I always check w/Jessica. She always takes the time to explain/consider what is best for me. Her caring, warmth and smile! She is the best!"
