I have been working at Citizens Pharmacy since November of last year, but have worked in the industry for the past 3 years at CVS. I love that Citizens treats their patients like family instead of a number. That has always been my style since I became a pharmacy tech. I am currently pursuing classes to start pharmacy school and am excited about what my future holds. I love hot coco, fast cars, and drag racing. I may be a redhead, but I am also a total gear head! Can't wait to see you at the pharmacy counter soon.

I have proudly served at Citizens Pharmacy for the past 23 years! My favorite part of coming to work is serving alongside the best coworkers. They aren't just coworkers, they are my friends. I also love working in my hometown and raising my two daughters here. My extended family is still local too and they are truly amazing people, I would be lost without them. Family, friends, coffee with lots of creamer, and most of all Jesus are what fuel and inspire me day in day out.

I have loved being part of the Citizens team for the last 3 years as the DME Supervisor. Come see me for custom fitting for diabetic shoes or medical equipment! My favorite thing about working at Citizens is serving our neighbors alongside the best coworkers. It is truly a team feeling around the pharmacy. I have been married for 11 years and have 3 beautiful daughters and a sweet granddaughter too! If you know me, then you know every day is a good day when it starts with coffee.

Carson Simpson

My name is Carson and I have been part of the amazing team at Citizens for just a few months, but I have worked in the industry for over 8 years. The staff here is second to none. I love being in a place where the top priority of every employee is to help others. The staff is a group of fun-loving, knowledgeable, and hard-working individuals, and it is a pleasure to serve the community with them. Outside of the pharmacy, I am a huge Bulldogs fan who loves to hike, camp, and run outdoors. On cold days, I don’t mind being tucked inside with a giant mug of hot apple cider!

Samir Shah

My name is Samir and I am honored to not only own but serve as the lead pharmacist at Citizens. I have been in the pharmacy field for over 14 years working my way up from technician to intern to a pharmacist. I graduated from UGA’s pharmacy school in 2008 and absolutely love what I get to do every day. I have the best, most engaged team members here at Citizens. I love our commitment to having a strong community presence and to delivering the best possible patient and customer care for the community's pharmacy and medical equipment needs. As a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I understand how important patient care is from the doctor office to the pharmacy counter and work to ensure our customers receive the best service our team can offer on every visit. When you don’t find me behind the pharmacy counter, I am enjoying my wife and two children and probably drinking a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks!

Alex Jackson

My name is Alex and I enjoy being part of the team at Citizens. I joined the staff in 2018 and find that Citizens is the perfect place for me to develop professionally, as I am not afraid to ask questions or make mistakes. Our team is the best at working together and helping each other so our customers receive the best service. I am currently pursuing a Biology degree and plan to become a Physician’s Assistant. My go-to drink on a cold day is definitely hot chocolate.
Taylor Bourdage -

Taylor Bourdage

My name is Taylor and I have been a part of the tight-knit “staff family” at Citizens for over four years. I love the relationships with my coworkers and how as a pharmacy we treat our patients as friends, not prescription numbers. Citizens has a very special hometown vibe and I plan to be a part of that for a very long time. I will graduate with my Biology degree from Oglethorpe University this spring and plan to attend Mercer University’s pharmacy school later this fall.

My name is Tamberra and I have been a pharmacy tech for over 3 years. Citizens is a unique place to work because it feels like a family, willing to take time for each other and our patients. Our owner, Samir, is a kind and generous person who is continuously looking for ways to improve the well-being of the customers, the employees and the community. While I love being a pharmacy tech, my passion is to become a nurse. I am currently pursuing my BSN. When I am not at Citizens, you will find me studying with hot coco in hand.

My name is Tiffany and I joined Citizens as a pharmacist in 2018. I have worked in the industry for over 22 years. I love the family environment at Citizens and the ability to practice pharmacy and spend time with my patients without all of the corporate constraints.
