“Lisa is an accomplished pharmacist, and we are excited to have her join our pharmacy family,” owner Al Dixon said. “Her professional demeanor, along with her enthusiasm to aid and educate patients, make her an excellent addition to our staff.”
Originally from Tifton, Sommers attended Abraham Baldwin College. After two years of undergraduate education in the pre-pharmacy program, she was accepted to the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy.
