Dukes, Pharma DrnrnJenna Lynne Dukes, PharmD, grew up in the small rural town of Gilbert, West Virginia. Her dream of owning and operating an independent pharmacy began at an early age. This desire only continued to grow through her time at West Virginia University and her career with on of the largest retail pharmacies in the U.S. Growing up in the coalfields of southern West Virginia, "independent pharmacy" is the only pharmacy that Jenna ever knew. It wasn't uncommon for each of these small West Virginia towns to include multiple independent pharmacies bearing the name of the particular municipality or the name of its owner. The customer service, personalized care, and relaxed atmosphere of these independent pharmacies made a lasting impact on Jenna. After spending almost a decade working for a national chain in North Myrtle Beach, Jenna realized that she was not able to extend the personalized care and attention to her customers on the other side of the counter. Her customers voiced their apprehensions, frustrations, and concerns with the national retail pharmacy system. Jenna listened to these concerns for years and finally heeded the advice of friends, family, and customers to open her own pharmacy.
