AAPT Member Spotlight
My Name is Candace Curry
I first became interested in being a tech when I visited my father’s job on bring your child to work day. I immediately fell in love there were so many “cool” things going on, all under the same roof. There were pharmacists, techs, chemists, distributors and pharmaceutical reps. The thing that stood out to me the most is that all these important people and their jobs and it was all for the animals. I was fascinated with what I saw and I knew from that day, I would dedicate my life to helping others. I hit a few obstacles along my journey, I was tired of looking for and working dead end jobs and I wanted more. I wanted something I could be proud of, a career.
My most memorable moment as a tech was being an extern at Offutt Airforce Base everyday was exciting there were some very interesting people. My third week there I got to witness a retirement of a man who had been honored over and over for his outstanding duties not only as an Airmen but for his continuous dedication to their pharmacy. I thought that was an honor for me to be invited to witness that.
My work at HMS Federal is important, because we take pride in helping our customers receive fair treatment and services. HMS has a very friendly work environment and there are endless learning and training opportunities. I feel like I have found my home, HMS is not just a company but we are a family. I am honored to be a part of the Pharmacy team at HMS.
I joined AAPT, because I wanted to be a part of something that was important to my field and that I could continue to learn and grow with. AAPT provides services and care for pharmacy technicians that other organizations do not offer. In the past I’ve enrolled in different organizations were I felt I was just another participant and I didn’t receive updates, free continued education opportunities, current events or recognition to keep me motivated and eager to excel in the Pharmacy field.
