Rebecca Lynch, RPhT
After graduating college in 2004, I immediately starting working in community pharmacy. From there I transitioned to LTC. In 2018, I traveled to Houston, Texas, to the National Association of Pharmacy Technicians and completed three certification courses including hazardous and non-hazardous sterile compounding and non-sterile compounding. I am a casual instructor for an accredited Pharmacy Technician Program, primarily instructing sterile compounding and hospital dispensing courses and recently earned a seat as a member on CSHPs compounding steering committee.
