Samantha Riley, Training & Development Specialist at Pharmedium, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of pharmacy management.
Ms. Riley was influenced in her career path due to her service in the U.S. Army, working as a pharmacy technician. It was a natural progression for her to work in the field upon returning to civilian life, and it soon became apparent to her superiors that she was well-versed and skilled in this field. Her superiors would ask her to train other employees, and after seeing her exemplary work in this, she became a training and development specialist at Pharmedium Healthcare in 2006. Backed by this skillset, Ms. Riley hopes to work in healthcare administration within the next five years. She hopes to make a positive impact within a hospital setting and invoke reform. She believes healthcare should be accessible and affordable to all and for being who need healthcare services to not have to worry about going into debt or bankruptcy.
Ms. Riley is currently working on a Bachelor of Arts in health and healthcare administration/management from Purdue University Global. In addition to her longstanding work as a training and development specialist, she is proud of the medals she received due to her military service. These accolades include two Army Accommodation Medals. She also received an Employee of the Month Award from Pharmedium. Her most notable achievement was introducing ASCTrac in 2010, which was a supply chain system responsible for tracking their products all the way through the door- from the staging process, through the packing and shipping, and out the door. She was the person responsible for implementing the system and being the lead at the facility.
