Jenna Younger, RPh, Pharm D, BScPharm, BSc
Pharmacist

Jenna moved to Rockwood as a young child. Once she was old enough for her first job (other than delivering the Wellington Advertiser), she started at Rockwood Pharmacy as a front shop clerk. She observed the dedication and care provided by her mentors, Maija Dale and Mary Murrell, and was inspired to become a pharmacist herself.

Jenna was accepted to the University of Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy. As a trainee, she worked in a variety of settings including independent pharmacies in Brampton and Niagara, hospitals in Hamilton and St. Catharine’s, and several chain stores.  Fortunately, her heart never left Rockwood!

Jenna graduated with her Doctorate of Pharmacy in August 2016 and was welcomed back to Rockwood Pharmacy as an intern, and then as a fully licensed pharmacist.

Jenna loves seeing familiar faces everyday, and enjoys meeting new clients that have come to call Rockwood their home. She now lives in Guelph with her “high school sweetheart” husband who works in Elmira.
