Legislative, Membership Benefits, and Immigration Chair
Myla Marshall was born and raised in the city of blues, Memphis, Tennessee. While on a mission trip to Iquitos, Peru with her alma mater, Alabama State University, she realized her love for serving underserved patient populations and pharmacy. She chose to attend Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy in Birmingham, AL, where she is now a 4th year student in a four-year program.
Myla has been able to serve in SNPhA on a variety of capacities while at Samford University. Since her P1 year, she has assumed the following roles: Chapter Vice President, Delegate, Legislative Chair, National LMBI Subcommittee, and now a second term as the National Legislative/Membership Benefits/ Immigration Chair. Through these experiences, Myla has been able to showcase her love for cultivating healthcare through pharmacy advocacy while forming lifelong friendships and making meaningful network connections.
In addition to SNPhA, Myla is an active member in AMCP, Phi Lambda Sigma Leadership Society, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity. Myla also works as an intern at Walgreens Pharmacy and the McWhorter School of Pharmacy Research Program. Here she has been able to work vigorously on her studies surrounding non-sterile compounded medications and how their varying pharmaceutical parameters affect patients. Myla’s future career goals include pharmacy advocacy, managed care, and pharmaceutical industry regulatory affairs. She is adamant in aiding in the refinement of healthcare while ensuring optimal patient experiences.
As National Legislative, Membership Benefits, and Immigration Chair, Myla’s vision is to continue to expand SNPhA both nationally and internationally to serve an array of underserved patient populations. Through this year’s motto “A Vision Today, Our L.E.G.A.C.Y. Tomorrow”, she hopes to empower her peers by setting action to SNPhA’s resolutions to further impact her community while leaving a lasting foundation for those who will come after her in the profession of pharmacy.
