Meet The Coach: Laura Licari

Laura Licari

Happy PharmD Coach

Laura is living out her dream of working in academia (without a residency!) and striving to motivate the future of pharmacy. She previously worked for a grocery store chain in Chicagoland, moved over to specialty pharmacy in PAH, transitioned to managed care as a Clinical Advisor, and has been an Assistant Professor since 2018.

She also had the honor of serving as the 7th woman President of the Illinois Pharmacists Association from 2018-2019, and is grateful for opportunities to continue to advocate for pharmacy on local, state and national levels.

She practices mindfulness meditation, and completed an 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course in 2021.

She believes there is individual potential in everyone, and promises to be excited through your journey of professional development. She relies too much on take-out and the cooking of her partner Mike, but keeps telling herself one day she will learn to be a better chef!
