Meet Our Students

STLCOP students don’t fit a particular mold. Our student body is diverse yet bound together by a common desire to pursue a career in pharmacy.

Get to Know Current Students

Moleigh Carson smilingName: Moleigh Carson
Class Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Oak Lawn, Illinois

Why I want to be a pharmacist:

I’ve always been interested in health care, but it wasn’t until high school that I realized pharmacy would be the best option for me. I find it so interesting how things work inside the body and how medications can affect so many things. I’ve thought a lot about going into research-based work, looking at different diseases to figure out how to control them or find a vaccine.

Name: Tizah Anjeh
Class Year: Professional year two (P2)
Hometown: Born in Cameroon, Africa as a U.S. citizen of an American mother and African father

Why I wanted to be a pharmacist:

After five years at Pfizer as a senior research chemist, I started thinking about pharmacy school as I dodged layoff after layoff. I knew my background in chemistry (including master’s and doctoral degrees in organic chemistry from The Johns Hopkins University) would be able to see me through a pharmacy program, and I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. I wanted to go somewhere where I could still use what I know and do something different.

Name: Emily Nickels
Class Year: Professional year two (P2)
Hometown: Marion, Arkansas

Why I wanted to be a pharmacist:

I have cystic fibrosis (CF), and I decided in the sixth grade that I wanted a career in the medical field. I knew I wanted to learn about medicine and how it affects me, and to see if I might be able to help others with cystic fibrosis.

Jessica Kowalski

Name: Jessica Kowalski
Hometown: Swansea, Illinois
Class Year: Professional year two (P2)

Favorite class:

So far, by far, my favorite course had been Pathophysiology. It has been the course that I felt has been not only the most interesting, but the most important pertaining to my future career. My favorite lab has been the Pharmaceutics Compounding Lab. It is also like being a mad scientist making different forms of medications like suppositories, solutions, suspension, capsules, and ointments. The emulsion was my favorite.
