Joy Andrews

Pharmacy Technician Teacher, HS

Prior to coming to the Academy to teach Pharmacy Careers, Ms. Andrews worked as a kindergarten and fifth grade teacher, a school counselor and assistant principal. She was born and raised in New Jersey. Ms. Andrews holds a BS in Education from Bucknell University, an M.Ed in school counseling from Virginia Tech, and a M.Ed in Education Leadership from George Mason University.  She is also a nationally certified pharmacy technician and maintains a pharmacy technician license from the Virginia Board of Pharmacy. Ms. Andrews especially enjoys teaching pharmacy because she not only teaches the “ins and outs” of pharmacy life but helps students operate the mock pharmacy in the lab.
