    Park City Women's Business Network (PCWBN)has accepted the nominations for the 2016 Woman of the Year award.

    PCWBN recognizes business women throughout Park City who routinely inspire others, make the community a better place, possess impressive intelligence, commitment, talent, and compassion. Each year, many women are nominated for the Park City Woman of the Year distinction, an annual recognition of a standout woman in business, created in memory of Candy Erickson, a Park City Councilwoman and steadfast PCWBN participant who passed away in 2011.
    Candidates can include local women in any field of business who contribute to the community through their work and/or personal involvement. PCWBN does not limit the criteria to women who own their own business or hold executive-level positions. Rather, nominations are accepted for women in any stage of their career, who deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments and contributions. Past winners include  Brooke Hontz (2014), Randi Jo Taurel (2013), Insa Riepen (2012) and Becky Kearns (2011). A variety of factors are taken into consideration when nominees are evaluated, including community and philanthropic service.

    This year's Woman of the Year award will be presented at PCWBN's May member meeting.

    Keri has been a nurse for 27 years and spent the last 14 years of her healthcare career as Chief Operating Officer for a large multi-specialty medical group in Nashville, Tennessee. After being a tourist for 15 years, she moved to Park City with her husband, Jeff, and dog, Lacey, in June 2014 in search of a healthier and more active lifestyle. Being too young to retire and in need of a new career that allowed for an active lifestyle, she started her own business as an independent consultant and partnered with the physician owned skincare company-Rodan and Fields. These products are clinically proven and based on a philosophy of multi-med therapy-the right ingredients, the right formulations, and in the right order.

    I've been a retail pharmacist for over 20 years because I love the interaction it affords with people and their health concerns.

    Soon after receiving my degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, I moved to Colorado to enjoy the recreation of a mountain lifestyle. With the wonderful trails and bike paths in Summit County, CO, I became hooked on cycling and enjoyed participating in the local road and mountain bike racing scene. It was really through competing that I realized the great importance of diet and lifestyle in daily performance, physical as well as mental.

    Developing a strong interest in nutrition and a more functional approach to health, I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to be involved with a colleague and friend in opening her compounding pharmacy. I was fascinated by how compounding allows customization and thereby the opportunity to minimize medication side effects and optimize their benefits.

    After moving to Park City in 2006 with my husband and two children, I worked for University Pharmacy, and Smiths and RiteAid, but could not get compounding off my mind. I attended comprehensive programs with PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) on compounding technique as well as on Bioidentical Hormone Therapy to be well prepared for my own store.

    Alpine Apothecary logoOpening Alpine Apothecary in early 2010 was the realization of a dream, and it has been an absolute pleasure to meet and work with the wonderful people here in Park City. The focus of our store is compounding, but we also take pride in our natural skincare products and the hand-picked supplements, all from the most reputable of manufacturers. We welcome anyone to stop by, enjoy a cup of healthful tea, and ask questions or simply take a break!

    The pcWBN has been a part of the whole journey! Even before we moved from Colorado, I discovered the group online and thought what a great idea it is to gather women in a constructive way, which inevitably also will be fun. Now I am so grateful to the group for the education, support, networking opportunities, and camaraderie it offers to all of us!
