There’s so many ways you could describe Maria Fandetti ’80, but perhaps the best way is entrepreneurial pharmacist. As an immigrant from Cuba, Maria’s path to Samford wasn’t traditional but her story about how the university changed her life is inspiring. She largely credits the people she met, specifically Tea Sam Roe, with having a major impact on her life and career and readily admits that she wouldn’t be where she is today without their influence and guidance. As an added bonus, we were also able to meet her son, and fellow McWhorter School of Pharmacy alum, J.P. Fandetti ’12. Thank you so much for sharing your story and for being a part of ours!
