Vanessa Tuy


Degree: B.S. Biochemistry



Bio: My name is Vanessa Tuy and I graduated from WSU in Fall 2015, with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biochemistry. Although my goal was to attend pharmacy school in 2016 I did not have the experience or a Pharmacist to write a letter of recommendation for me. After graduating I started volunteering at Providence Hospital in the gift shop and soon after found a job as a Pharmacy Assistant. Just within the year I proved my self to my Pharmacists and fellow co-workers, and made a lasting relationship to where they encouraged me to go to pharmacy school. I applied to pharmacy school and got accepted into WSU College of Pharmacy and I am now a part of the Class of 2021. My experience so far with WSU is similar to my undergrad experience, I have made amazing friends and the Spokane Campus has the same community and unity as the Pullman Campus. I attended a career fair in November 2017 and got a ten week internship with Bi-Mart for the summer. My current goal for pharmacy is to go into long-term care and compounding with an expertise in veterinary medicine and geriatrics. I hope that I can inspire others to accomplish their goals. Although I spend a majority of my time focusing on pharmacy school I do have other hobbies. I play video games, board games, and recently just started a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Since I am an introvert, I do enjoy time on my own, away from technology, so I knit, crochet, or draw in a secluded area.
