“I love being a part of the Bremo team, because every day I see them finding new ways to be friendly and caring.”

Hello, I’m Catherine Cary. I’m a second generation pharmacist at Bremo Pharmacy.

I graduated from VCU School of Pharmacy with my Bachelors of Pharmacy in 1989, and my Doctorate of Pharmacy in 1994. In my spare time I enjoy cycling and serving as a Scout leader.

Mary Curtis

PharmD

“I am so happy that I am now a part of the Bremo team. The service and family feeling remind me daily of why I selected pharmacy as my profession when I was just 15 years old.”

Hello, I’m Mary Curtis. I grew up in a small town in North Carolina and my very first job at the age of 15 was in the pharmacy with my cousin, who is also a pharmacist. I knew I wanted to be in the healthcare profession but seeing the impact that my cousin was able to have on a patient’s health and well-being allowed me to develop my love and passion for pharmacy. I graduated from Shenandoah University in 2011 with my doctorate of pharmacy. It has been a pleasure joining Bremo and I love being able to meet the many needs of the patients and families at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. Outside of pharmacy I also enjoy spending time with my husband and little girl and doing outdoor activities such as hiking and biking in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
