Welcome to Pinoy PharmD – Navigating Pharmacy & Family Adventures

Hello! I’m Jaycelle Turner, a licensed pharmacist in the US and an enthusiastic world explorer with my wonderful family—the Turners. Our blog, Pinoy PharmD, serves a dual purpose: aiding foreign pharmacists in establishing their careers in the US and sharing our family’s travel adventures across the globe.

My Pharmacy Journey

Originally from the Philippines, where I completed my pharmacy degree, I experienced firsthand the challenges of transitioning to the American healthcare system. Becoming a licensed pharmacist in the US was daunting and vastly different from what I was accustomed to. Understanding the hurdles that foreign pharmacists face inspired me to create this blog. I aim to empower you—my fellow pharmacists—with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in the US healthcare environment.

On Pinoy PharmD, you will find comprehensive guides on the licensure process, exam preparation, and effective job-hunting techniques. However, I also believe in the importance of a balanced life. That’s why I am committed to sharing strategies for maintaining a healthy work-life balance, especially for those juggling family responsibilities.

Our Travel Blog

Apart from pharmacy, travel is a significant part of our lives. “Adventure knows no age limit!” is our family motto. With our adorable toddler in tow, we have ventured into various landscapes, from bustling cities to tranquil natural retreats. Our blog documents these journeys and offers practical tips for like-minded parents who dream of traveling with their children but fear it might be too challenging.

At Pinoy PharmD, expect to be whisked away on our family adventures, where we discuss everything from airport hacks to the best kid-friendly hiking trails. Our posts are designed to inspire and empower you to make travel a part of your family’s lifestyle, creating unforgettable memories without compromising the joys of exploration.
