After receiving my Pharmacy degree from Oregon State University in 1977, I started my career working at Fred Meyer Pharmacies. I also co-owned Valley Pharmacy Service, a nursing home pharmacy in the Willamette Valley.
My love for warm weather and aloha spirit brought me to Maui in 1989, where I managed an independent retail pharmacy in Kihei. After working with Farah for many years, we discovered our shared vision of a more personalized, integrative pharmacy. Together, we are now fulfilling our dream of owning a neighborhood pharmacy offering personalized customer service, compounding, and assisting our patients to meet their wellness needs.
In my spare time, I enjoy Maui’s outdoor lifestyle—playing tennis, biking, swimming, and romping on the beach with my dog Sadie.
Born in Jerusalem, I grew up running errands and performing small tasks for the neighborhood pharmacy my father owned and operated. His personalized care for each customer was my inspiration to pursue a career as a pharmacist. I earned my degree from Wayne State University, Michigan, and spent most of my career working for large chain pharmacies.
I have been a practicing pharmacist on Maui since 2000, fostering deep roots in the community and strong relationships with my customers and coworkers. Over the years, my co-pharmacist, Shelley Seideman, and I discovered a common wellness philosophy. Through Wailea Pharmacy we hope to create the personalized neighborhood experience we both envision. Wailea Pharmacy will focus on the full spectrum of wellness products available, from the pharmaceutical to the holistic, while striving for optimum customer service. We look forward to being part of your wellness team on Maui.
