Hello, my name is Elizabeth Locklear. I graduated from Campbell University School of Pharmacy with honors in 2004. I am originally from the suburbs of Charlotte, NC and first moved to Wilmington in 1997 when I started college at UNCW. While at UNCW I discovered a love for science, especially chemistry. I wanted to find a career that would combine my love for chemistry and the ability to help others. I came across pharmacy and began my journey that has led me to Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy.
My husband, Joey, and I have a vivacious little boy who is 17 months old. We are also excited to welcome a little baby girl to our family this August! When I am not at the pharmacy most of my time is spent with my family either going to the beach, playing at the park, or going to the different concerts we have in the parks in Wilmington. Our family loves music, especially our little boy Oliver who dances every time we turn the radio on.
It is my pleasure to serve the Rocky Point community!
Hello, my name is Denise Marrotta. I began as a Food Science major at Cook College at Rutgers University and transferred to the College of Pharmacy. I graduated from The College of Pharmacy at Rutgers University in 1985.
I’ve practiced pharmacy in various settings but have always enjoyed the independent pharmacy business the best. It definitely provides the time for individual care that every customer deserves. I enjoy sharing my pharmaceutical knowledge with my customers as I counsel them about their prescriptions.
My husband, Joe, and our two daughters, Marlee and Rena, moved to North Carolina in 2008 from New Jersey. We escaped the Jersey winters and taxes! We have embraced the Carolina beach life style and love the beautiful weather.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching my daughters play volleyball, going to our beautiful beaches, traveling, and playing with our two pups: Callie and Lucky. Callie is a schnoodle and Lucky, who is a rescue pup, is a morkie; which is a maltese yorkie. (At least that is our best guess since he is a rescue.)
I am very fortunate in that I get to work at both Village Pharmacy and Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy on a regular basis. Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy is bilingual and as a result, I am brushing up on my Spanish while I work. Both of our pharmacies provide professional care at the right price. I look forward to meeting you in person and introducing you to our motto: Village Pharmacy and Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy: Because you can’t wait to feel better !
Hello, my name is Beth Grundell. I started working in pharmacy in 2001 to earn money while obtaining my bachelors degree in sociology from the UNC-W. I have been working for Village Pharmacy of Hampstead, Inc. since 2007 and work in the Rocky Point store.The best part about my job is the customers and helping people. Making sure customers receive their prescriptions in a timely manner and understand their medications and is important to me.
I consider it a privilege to help others here in Rocky Point and across the world. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering for mission trips to Piet Retief, South Africa where there is a local ministry that reaches and provides care to more than 600 children who have been orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic.These people are dear to my heart. My passion is in helping others –whether it is a child in South Africa or a customer in Rocky Point, I’m thankful for both opportunities.
Hello there I’m Silvia Mendez and I currently live in Burgaw. I live with my husband of four years and together we have a daughter named Naomi Camila who’s 3 years old. I am from Fort Myers, Florida and moved to North Carolina at a very young age. Life has been the best so far here in North Carolina. I speak Spanish, English and Mixteco. Mixteco is a native language in a small part of Oaxaca, Mexico from where my parents were raised. I can read, write and speak English and Spanish very fluently and I feel that it is a great privilege to know both languages because it’s the best of both worlds. I graduated Pender Early College in 2014 and also attended Cape Fear Community College for a couple of years.
I have been working at Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy for about a year now and I love it! While working at the pharmacy I have learned that being in a smaller setting you get to know the customers better and you get to know them in a personal way that makes them feel a little bit like family. Getting to know who the customer is, along with their likes and dislikes, helps the staff and me attend to them better. I have a passion for wanting to help people in different ways . I feel so thankful and privileged to be able to help all of my friends and family and even people that I am just getting to know by working at the pharmacy. It’s a feeling of satisfaction knowing that you were able to help somebody that day whether it be by listening to them or helping them understand what medicine they picked up. I love and am grateful for my pharmacy family! So stop by and see what Rocky Point Pavilion Pharmacy has to offer you that large chain pharmacies don’t and I guarantee that you’ll love it.
