Mountain States Pharmacy's Shirley Shepherd celebrates 60 years on the job

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Shirley Shepherd hit a big anniversary this month when she reached 60 years on the job with the pharmacy! To honor her, some of her Mountain States Pharmacy team members and family treated her to a party at The Olive Garden, her favorite restaurant.

Shirley started in 1957 at Wilson Pharmacy (which eventually became part of Mountain States) and has worked as a bookkeeper, telephone operator and now as a customer service representative.

“She is amazing!” said Mandi Mittelsteadt, certified infusion intake coordinator. “She greets everyone with a smile and when she is not there for one day, everyone notices. She is missed greatly on her days off! Shirley has the patience of a saint and is always so positive and willing to do anything to help anyone.”

Cheryl Shelnutt, retail pharmacy operations director, also had kind words for Shirley.

“She is a huge asset to Mountain States and does so many things for us. We really wanted to honor her for all she’s done. She's the face of Mountain States Pharmacy!"
