Stephen Creasy ’10 liked to be a part of organizations because it challenged him to be innovative and taught him how to work with people of various backgrounds and personalities. The faculty supported Creasy by going above and beyond for him when he needed help to get a project off the ground. “These experiences have helped me immensely in the ‘real’ world, especially in assuming managerial roles.” He choose Shenandoah because he loved the outdoor activities offered and the small town feel.
Creasy is now a utilization manager for PharMerica in Louisville, Kentucky. He develops clinical products and content to be implemented at 103 pharmacies in 45 states, evolves innovative pharmacogenomics testing/reporting and stays ahead of federal nursing home regulations. Creasy says the most rewarding part of his job is being able to see a project start as an idea and then be implemented on a national level. Instead of helping one patient at a time, he is able to help hundreds of thousands at a time.
Shenandoah provided a strong foundation of didactic knowledge and also provided me with several opportunities to be involved in various organizations.”
Creasy’s advice for future students is: “Do not be afraid of change, to challenge yourself and to explore ‘non-traditional’ career opportunities.”
