Whitney White believes her presence at Samford University is a direct result of God’s plan for her life. McWhorter School of Pharmacy was the only school to which White applied after changing her career pursuits from medicine to pharmacy, a change that was aligned better with her personal and professional goals. “I entered pharmacy school confident in my knowledge from prior education, and I walked away with exemplary training from some of the most intelligent, compassionate and supportive faculty anywhere.” White returned to Samford after her residency to pursue a career in academia and is now going into her fifth year of teaching. “I feel so blessed for the opportunity to share with students my experience as a practitioner and to hopefully instill in them a love for learning and a true heart for patient care,” she said.
