Amber Perry, CPhT 

Board Liason


My name is Amber Perry and I have been a pharmacy technician for twelve years.  During this time I have gained significant experience in both the retail and ambulatory setting.  I started in retail when I was nineteen and worked in that sector for eight years.  From the beginning, I was quickly put in charge of training our incoming pharmacy technician and intern staff.  I also helped new pharmacists learn our pharmacy software when they started with the team. 

In 2016, I transitioned to the University of Utah Pharmacy Ambulatory Clinical Care Center (PAC3).  I am currently a lead technician for this team. I process refill requests for the community clinics and several specialty departments. I also work with the Specialty Pharmacy Services team within PAC3.  Through this team I process prior authorizations for specialty medications and help coordinate medication deliveries for over 1300 patients.

My involvement with USHP started with CE events then grew into something bigger after realizing how in-depth my involvement could be. I believe in continually learning and practicing at the top of my license. USHP provides me an opportunity to practice that belief frequently and I am grateful for everything that the organization has to offer.
