She started her pharmacy career by getting her license when she was a manager of the front end of a Walgreens in order to help the pharmacy in busy times. She recently achieved her CPhT-ADV with the help of the USHP scholarship. She absolutely loves her job and helping people through clinical studies.

Miranda Acevedo, CPhT
My name is Miranda Acevedo and I have been a pharmacy technician for 3 years now. I have worked hard to get to where I am today in my career. I started my career in retail pharmacy for the first few years. I really enjoy working with patients. I was excited to learn how to administer vaccines when I worked in retail. I enjoy learning things that are going to make me a better technician. This led me to my current job, working in an institutional setting. I have been there for a year now, and have enjoyed learning the new things that come along with it.
My involvement with USHP started because I wanted to apply for a scholarship to become certified in administering immunizations. From there, I realized what technicians can be a part of through USHP and how I could better myself. I am grateful for everything this organization has to offer.
