Brenda Weston, RPh, Pharm.D

Brenda has been working as a pharmacist since graduating in 1998 from Midwestern University, although she’s actually been a Hills Family Drug employee since 1989.

She says patients like seeing the same friendly faces behind the counter when they pick up their prescriptions from Hills Family Drug.
