    As an adult with a job and a family, you can find that it's not always easy. If you are a super mom or dad, you know just how to make it look easy and still make sure your kids are taking care of. A Pharmacy technicians ensure medications are filled correctly in a specified time. Unlike pharmacists, pharmacy technicians are not the sole dispensers of medication. They mostly assist in measuring, mixing, counting and labeling dosages of medications.

    “My title is senior pharmacy tech, I do data entry and call insurance, I deal with customer because I also work in retail, I do inventory and I also train other technicians” said Wisena Charles.

    Parents with kids that they have to wake up early in the morning to get them ready for school and also have to go to work can be hard and tiring, and work can sometimes come between family times if you allow it to. “ My schedule is very flexible, it works out okay for me and no I don't let work come between me and my family” said Charles.

    A Lot of people say that they hate their jobs, but in order to enjoy what you do, it kind it depends on you as the person working. If you go to work all moody and sad, of course it won't be enjoyable. You have to be able to make connection good memories with others. “ I'm good at what I do, I can multi task, i'm a team player and I also enjoy what I do for a living”, said Charles. It is ideal to hear what Mrs. charles co workers says about how good she is at her job.     

    We don't always know what we want to do in life as a kid, and if you do know what you want to be, it might change one day. “Growing up I always wanted to be a dancer or singer, but i've been a pharmacy Tech for 21 years now and I see myself doing the same thing in the future”, “I would recommend my job to others because you're helping others feel well, live well and stay well, and that's Walgreens model, that's what we do best”, said Charles.
