Meet Jennifer

I drive to customer locations to deliver their shipments and pick up and return their used shipments. I get satisfaction knowing that we are assisting people during their difficult periods of diagnosis and treatment. I try every day to make sure that when I see a person in our delivery area at the hospitals, I give them a warm smile and say a little prayer for them.
Jennifer, Pharmacy Services Associate and Delivery Driver
