In a season full of confusion and stress, our Sona Access program can help take the guesswork out of medication management! Today we want to introduce you to another one of our newest Sona Access team members, Emily Earley!
Tell us about yourself:
My name is Emily Earley. I am 24 years old and I have lived in Asheville, NC my whole life. I am an Owen High School alumni and now I am currently in real estate school. I have been married for about 7 months to my best friend, Taylor, and we have two of the sweetest dogs, a German Shepherd and an Australian Shepherd.
Why did you choose to work at Sona pharmacy:
I am pretty biased when it comes to Sona because I worked for Sona for 2 years in the front end store before coming back this year and moving into the access team. Sona Pharmacy really is a big family and we treat our patients the same way we would treat our own.
How can Sona Access help patients and caregivers:
Sona Access is such an amazing opportunity for patients and caregivers because it takes the guesswork out of in-home medication adherence. We make sure everything the patient needs is packed or bottled for the right day and time, and also has clear labeling so that our patients know exactly what their medication is for. We also talk monthly (if not more) with each patient or caregiver to make sure that we are all on the same page and that they are getting exactly what they need.
What unique skills do you rely on as a Sona Access team member:
I naturally have a heart for people and helping them in any way that I can. Through the Access team, I get the chance to get to know our patients and learn how to better serve them. Some people just want to talk while some need someone to explain their medication; whatever they are needing, I’m always happy and eager to help.
A few fun facts about me are: I want to eventually move to Florida or have a vacation home there. We try to go there at least once a year and it’s my absolute favorite place in the world! My husband loves to golf and I let him name both of our dogs, so now we have Bogey and Birdie.
I love to hang out with friends, family and church family (when we are not in quarantine) and be outside with my husband and dogs. I enjoy working outside in the yard, doing DIY projects, and leading a children’s class at my church. I also enjoy watching and “trying” to help my husband cook and try new recipes…but I am most certainly not the cook in our house.
What to remember about my blog post:
I hope people remember that I am here to lend a hand or listening ear to any and all of our patients and that helping our patients is my passion!
