Princess Wimberly

ApprenticeshipPHL

Princess Wimberly is the first hired CVS Health Pharmacy Technician in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region.

Princess graduated from World Communication Charter School in June 2016 and shortly after enrolled at Harcum College to study criminal justice.

Princess has a love for school and learning through due to financial costs, Princess left Harcum college after the first year. She enrolled with Job Corps in Winter 2017 with the initial plan to enroll in the CNA program, though, was instantly drawn into the Pharmacy program. Her interest in working in the health care field started at a young age shadowing her grandmother’s health care career at Pennsylvania Hospital. Princess started the CVS Health externship in spring 2018 completing 160 pre-work hours and shortly after interviewed and was hired into the Pharmacy Technician apprenticeship role in July 2018.

Through the apprenticeship she has come to appreciate that patience is key and has learned to understand that everyone has a story. She has enjoyed applying classroom lessons into practice at CVS Health.

Princess is interested to continue her career with CVS after she completes the apprenticeship program. She is planning to take the PTCB exam by the end of year. She is also eager to go back to school to finish her Criminal Justice degree to leverage her experience in the pharmacy with the hopes of starting a career in narcotics.
