Meet Jennifer Lissick, a member of our pharmacy team!
How long have you worked at Children’s? I started at Children’s in 2010 as a pharmacy resident and then was hired on as a staff pharmacist in 2011.
Describe your work at Children’s. I recently started a new position as the pharmacist for the Hemophilia Treatment Center. My role is still evolving but in general I monitor and manage treatment for patients with bleeding or clotting disorders as part of the multidisciplinary team in the clinic.
Why did you become a pharmacist?I have always liked math and science. I wanted to be part of the health care team and work with patients as well as other providers. I also find it fascinating to understand how drugs work in the body to improve disease states and promote wellness.
What do you love most about your job? Working with kids and the wonderful community of coworkers that strive to improve care for each patient everyday.
How do you spend your time outside of work? I like to enjoy the outdoors, travel to warm places, cheer on Minnesota sports teams and spend quality time with my friends and family. The last five and a half months have been pretty busy as my husband and I had our first child, so most of my free time is spent with my adorable baby girl Whitney these days.
