We had the good fortune of connecting with Lisa King and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lisa, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I have been a pharmacist for nearly 32 years and I love sharing health information whether I am inside or outside of the pharmacy. I started sharing on social media as The Fulfilled Pharmacist four years ago. I am all about disease prevention and I want to share my own belief that health is not only about living a long life but a long and fulfilled life. I am also a firm believer in never giving up and achieving goals one step at a time. My sister and I wrote our coauthored book Tiny Life changes three years ago. We knew change could be daunting and we wanted to share simple reminders on living the life you desire one step and one day at a time. I obtained my life coaching certification so I could better share with my followers at the time we launched the book. When we launched Tiny Life Changes, I was invited on to a lot of podcasts for interviews. One of the interviewers asked me about my Interstitial Cystitis diagnosis that I had shared at one point in a post. I thought “This is in my past, I don’t want to share this!” Soon other podcasters learned of my diagnosis and wanted to ask about it too! I started getting a lot of questions from women who heard the interviews about how I was able to create an environment of healing in my own body to get over this very painful diagnosis. Soon I put it all together and that is how Ditchbladderpain.com was born. My hope is to give hope to women living with bladder issues, to let them know they are not alone and there are treatment options!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been a pharmacist of 32 years and until recently that was in retail pharmacy. I absolutely loved the interaction with all of my patients. Currently; I work at a closed door pharmacy that specializes in medical foods for patients with metabolic genetic disorders. I am honored to be recognized as Singlecare’s Most Influential Pharmacist of 2020 through my sharing on social media as The Fulfilled Pharmacist.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I absolutely love Scottsdale! My favorite day would definitely include shopping and dining at Kierland Commons. It would also include a trip to the Verde River for hiking and possibly spotting the wild horses that roam there!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
