Remote Pharmacist Role: How This Pharmacist Got Her Work-From-Home Job

In a recent conversation with one of our clients, Katie Lozano, she shared a story that resonates deeply with the experiences of many pharmacists navigating their careers today. Katie had been with her company for seven years when it was acquired by a larger corporation. Over time, she noticed a significant shift in the company culture, with an increasing emphasis on numbers and less attention to employee well-being.

As her job demands grew, Katie struggled to balance her professional responsibilities with her personal life, particularly as a mother of two young children. The position required her to be on call 24/7 and to travel frequently, leaving her feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from her family.

Despite her efforts to find a new position within the company, Katie felt stuck and unhappy. It wasn’t until she reached a breaking point in August or September 2023 that she realized she needed to make a change. Feeling desperate for relief from her job, Katie stumbled upon The Happy PharmD through a LinkedIn recommendation.

After her initial consultation, Katie made the bold decision to quit her job, even before securing a new position. With the support and guidance of her coach, Katie embarked on a journey of self-discovery and career exploration and found success after only 3 months!

“Investing in coaching was worth every penny. Doing it on my own would have cost so much more time and money than coaching did,” Katie says.

One of Katie’s most significant revelations was learning to focus on the aspects of her job that she enjoyed rather than fixating on what she disliked. This shift in perspective allowed her to identify opportunities that aligned with her personal and professional priorities.

Fast forward to today, and Katie is thriving in her new role, which offers the flexibility and work-life balance she craved. Working remotely has allowed her to be more present with her family, especially during the holidays, without the constant stress and pressure of her previous job.

Reflecting on her experience, Katie emphasizes the importance of investing in career coaching, particularly in navigating the complexities of the modern job market. She credits coaching with saving her time and energy in her job search, ultimately leading to a successful transition to her new role of Remote PBM.

Katie’s story is a testament to the transformative power of coaching and the importance of prioritizing personal well-being in career decisions. If you find yourself feeling stuck or unhappy in your current position, remember that change is possible, and support is available to help you navigate your path forward.
