Donna Mattera, RPh
Regional Manager of Operations – Midwest
I am Donna Mattera Regional Manager of Operations for HealthDirect for the Midwest. My states are Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. A little history on my life in pharmacy. I started working in pharmacy when I was 15 yrs old and knew it was my calling.
I graduated from St Louis College of Pharmacy in 1989 and my first job I started in hospital pharmacy then moved and took a job as retail pharmacy manager at Kare Pharmacy and I then got interested in Long Term Care and became executive director at NCS Healthcare until 2003 when they sold I decided to own my own pharmacy so I bought a Medicine Shoppe in Gibson City, Illinois and opened a new Medicine Shoppe in Farmer City Illinois and a LTC pharmacy, Uvanta pharmacy in Chatham Il. In 2017 I sold to HealthDirect Pharmacy and continued as the Facility Manager and Supervising Pharmacist until 2020 when I got promoted to Regional Manager.
My decision to sell to HealthDirect was one of the best decisions I have made. KPH/HealthDirect is a great company and the fact that it is employee owned is another huge benefit. I didn’t have to give up the ownership and yet got a huge benefit of corporate support. I enjoy coaching and training my team and sharing my skills and knowledge that I acquired in my many years of experience. I want my team to enjoy their accomplishments as much as I do when I see them achieve their goals. We take pride in giving the best service we can to our customers.
