Cathy Windish, R.Ph., consultant and pharmacist at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy. Cathy graduated from Drake University in 1975 and has devoted 40 years to the world of pharmacy.
Many of those years have been spent owning and operating Elmwood Pharmacy in Elmwood, Illinois. Fifteen years ago, Cathy found great interest in the world of compounding by attending multiple seminars with her colleagues, Wade and Jennifer Siefert. As she began incorporating compounding at Elmwood Pharmacy her passion grew for the unique contributions that compounding can add to the overall health of a patient, specifically women’s health. Her amplified knowledge of compounding led her to incorporate in-practice consultations with patients at Elmwood Pharmacy.
Cathy sold Elmwood Pharmacy in October of 2015, and today has the fantastic opportunity to spend her time providing professional health consultations to both men and women at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy. To schedule a consultation with Cathy, contact the pharmacy at 309-679-2047.
Sterile Lab Manager
My job title is Aseptic (Sterile) Compounding Lab Manager. I supervise and see that all quality control and quality assurance standards are met. That includes sterility testing, environmental monitoring testing, and purity testing of the sterile products that we make at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy. I also create most formulations for the new products we make as well as performing the actual sterile compounding itself.
I have been working at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy since 2009 and I have been a pharmacy technician since 2006 and have been compounding since I started at the pharmacy.
What I love most about working at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy is the day-to-day challenges and responsibilities that my job title represents. I also like the “small store feel” that this pharmacy has. Everybody knows everybody.
I graduated in 2010 from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and earned a degree in Biomedicine and Chemistry.
In my free time I do a lot of cooking. I have been cooking since I was a small child. I love to experiment with different foods. I also do lots of outdoor activities when I can; baseball, hiking, exercising, and playing with my dogs. Also, this year I have really gotten into fencing and I’m pretty good at it. I also enjoy reading and watching movies.
Non-Sterile Lab Manager
My primary duty as Non-Sterile Lab tech manager is to oversee the day-to-day non-sterile lab operations. I am in charge of preparing compounded medications for the patients, maintaining lab inventory, updating formulas, as well as training new staff.
I have over 20 years of experience in the world of pharmacy and I have been at Preckshot Professional Pharmacy since 2011.
I have experience in both retail and compounding pharmacy, but I have found compounding to be the most rewarding to me. I enjoy creating the compounded medications for patients and seeing them benefit from it.
In my free time, I love being a wife and a mom. I enjoy bowling with my family, watching movies and being involved in my son’s school activities.
As Wellness Director, I am in charge of managing the Supplements and Health Service floors. I manage personnel and make sure inventory is ordered promptly and efficiently. My responsibility as Wellness Director allows me to advise and/or choose the supplements that we carry on the floor. That process has allowed me to develop a vast knowledge of the supplements on hand, and I am able to offer educated advice to customers on their supplementation. In conjunction with my Wellness responsibilities, I am a trained distributer of Young Living Essential Oils and I am certified in Yong Living Raindrop Therapy.
When I’m away from the pharmacy, I enjoy spending time with my family and two dogs. I am also currently working on a certification in aroma therapy.
