Casey Taylor - P2
Hello, my name is Casey Taylor, and I from Norton, Va. Before I decided to come to ETSU I received my degree in Chemistry at UVA-Wise. I chose the Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy because I felt like I was a part of the family from day 1! I feel like it is my second home. I have made wonderful new friendships, and I have felt myself grow as a professional as I work towards becoming a pharmacist. I would love to answer any questions you may have about my experiences here at BGCOP!
Jacob Seal - P3
Hey guys, my name is Jacob Seal and I am from Sneedville, TN. Before coming here to the Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy, I attended Walters State Community College and received my AS in Chemistry. When I came to the interview day, I immediately fell in love with everything about the college. From the location in the mountains to the family atmosphere that both the students and the faculty display, there is definitely something that you will fall in love with. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or feel free to just chat with me about the school and our program!
Melody Fredo - P3
Hello everyone!! My name is Melody Fredo, and I am currently a 3rd year student pharmacist. I came to Johnson City all the way from Belfast, NY. I attended the University at Buffalo where I earned my B.S. degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology. There are many reasons why I chose Gatton: smaller class sizes, friendly faculty/staff, variety of organizations, dual degree options, and the focus on interprofessional development. The program here is evolving to meet and exceed the requirements of becoming a pharmacist. Please contact me with any questions/concerns you may have, I would be happy to help!!
Erica Rhein P4
My name is Erica Rhein. I am from Romeo, MI and I obtained my undergraduate degree from Oakland University in Rochester, MI. I am currently a fourth year student pharmacist at Gatton College of Pharmacy. I decided to apply to Gatton because my husband and I love the mountains and hiking. I fell in love with our school when I came for my interview and have not regretted moving away from home to attend school in Johnson City. The culture of our school is very inviting, supportive, and family-like. I couldn't have asked for a better place to learn the practice of pharmacy. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about our program.
