Terri Wensel joined the Samford faculty in 2008 after having taught at Wingate School of Pharmacy in North Carolina. “This job opened up at the right time for my family. I feel fortunate that I was able to stay in academia within a faith-based, private school. This setting allows me to interact with students on a more personal level than I would be able to do elsewhere.” Wensel has been involved with a variety of initiatives and courses at McWhorter School of Pharmacy and maintains a practice site at Christ Health Center's Woodlawn campus. "My responsibility as an educator is to enable our students to be the best pharmacists they possibly can be. I enjoy every day with them," she said. Wensel, who loves cooking and reading, has a daughter, Claire; son, Ethan; and dogs, Lynx and Stella.
