Jennifer Beall has learned there is no place like home. As part of a military family, Beall grew up living overseas. Before joining the military, both her parents attended Samford. "My dad went during the day, and my mom went at night. They would trade me off in the caf at dinner," she said. After graduating from McWhorter School of Pharmacy in 1996, Beall moved to Abilene, Texas, and worked in a hospital pharmacy before returning home to Samford and joining the faculty in 2000. The opportunity has allowed her to live out her favorite scripture, Colossians 3:23, "Whatever work you do, put yourself into it, as those who are serving not merely other people, but the Lord." She witnesses the fruits of her labor every time she gets an email from a former student. "It’s so rewarding for me to watch them grow as a pharmacist and even get to see some of my students become teachers. To be able to share experiences on that level is very fulfilling."
