Donnie received his PharmD from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in 2003. Early in his career he worked for a large chain in many different capacities including Staff Pharmacist, Pharmacy Manager and District Supervisor. After leaving the chain he went to work for a large non-profit community mental health center where he eventually took on the role of Director of Medical and Pharmacy Operations. His passion for patients, business acumen and thirst for professional growth led him to leave the community mental health center and open an independent pharmacy.
When he owned a pharmacy, his most fulfilling moments came when he was able to help his peers navigate obstacles in their own business. In 2018, he decided to become a certified coach and focus his time on business coaching and consulting. People management, conflict management, leadership, team building, and financial acumen are universal. Donnie loves bridging the gap between pharmacists, executives, legislators, and patients, almost as much as he loves teaching others how to do the same.
During his free time, you will find him enjoying a craft beer, watching a sporting event, or embarking on an adventure with his wife and two boys!
