Mikayla Wilkins


I was born and raised in Forest City, NC. I graduated from Rutherford Early College High School and Isothermal Community College in 2016 with my Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees. I started working at Smith's Drugs as a pharmacy technician in 2017. I became a pharmacy intern upon starting school at Wingate University in 2018. I graduated from Wingate University with my Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree in May 2022 as a member of the Rho Chi Honor Society and valedictorian of my class. I began working as a pharmacist at Smith's Drugs in June of 2022.

I enjoy being a pharmacist because it gives me the opportunity to answer medication-related questions and help patients of my community improve their health.

When I am not working, I enjoy reading, bowling, and traveling to amusement parks to ride roller coasters.
