BS – Samford University in Pharmacy

Registered Pharmacist in Alabama and Virginia currently


Ron moved to university pharmacy after a long career in retail pharmacy.  After working in high volume pharmacies and serving as a district manager in two major drug chains,  Ron felt that the opportunity to establish a new university pharmacy at JMU was the perfect professional challenge for him. “The move has been a wonderful experience for me and for my family. I could not ask for a better group of people to work with.”

Working with the student population is one of his favorite duties and he is happy helping patients learn to improve their current and long-term health.  He feels that this position has been both a teaching and a learning opportunity for him. “Being able to interact with the students is very enjoyable and satisfying. JMU has great students.” 

Ron enjoys trips to Hilton Head Island as often as possible, playing golf with his family, and spoiling his grand-daughter.  He regularly attends JMU football and basketball games and is a long- time season ticket holder for both sports.  “Going to Frisco for the National Championship game was a great experience!”


Ron’s favorite quote comes from the famous group of philosophers known as The Rolling Stones:   

“You can’t always get what you want, but you just might find that you get what you need.”
