Heather Epps, Pharm.D.
Founder & President
Providing Direction in the Confusing World of Pharmacy
Heather spent over a decade as a practicing pharmacist, interacting with patients in a variety of settings, when she discovered there was a significant need for pharmacy benefit education. Guidepost Rx was born. With work experience in pharmacy benefit management, retail pharmacy, and medication cost management, Heather has developed a program to help people optimize their pharmacy benefit, improve their health literacy, and become better advocates for themselves.
As a mother of a child with a chronic health condition, Heather also knew that she wanted to create a series of books that helped educate children and their caregivers about medications to treat childhood illnesses. Utilizing her pharmacy background, and interest in writing and illustrating, the Pharm Friends series came to life.
Heather earned her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Creighton University.
