Katie Mothershed

Regional Manager of Operations - Midwest

Hello, I’m Katie Mothershed and am a member of the Operations team at HealthDirect Pharmacy, currently serving in the role of Regional Manager of Operations for pharmacies located in the Midwest.

I graduated with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2012. Throughout pharmacy school, I interned at a large community pharmacy chain, which cemented my passion for this career path. I started my career as a pharmacist working in a specialty pharmacy that performed extensive sterile and nonsterile compounding, gaining the foundation and experience necessary to succeed in my current role at HealthDirect.

I started with HealthDirect in 2018 and could not be more excited to work for an employee-owned company! I believe that the best leaders are those that take ownership and responsibility for their role and tasks and see themselves as a contributing team member in the relentless pursuit of success, so it’s a natural fit for me to be part of an organization where employees are recognized and rewarded for going above and beyond.

My favorite part of my position is interacting with each facility within my region to identify the best options for our care partners and finding ideal solutions to operational challenges. Pharmacy is not a static profession; it is constantly changing, and I love discovering ways we can evolve to gain efficiencies within our own operation or provide a higher level of care for our facilities and care partners. My ultimate motivation is to continuously exceed expectations when providing services to patients in need.
