Born and raised in eastern North Carolina, Natalie Young is now fully rooted in Raleigh. Young graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics before receiving her Chemistry degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. She went on to earn her Doctorate from the UNC-Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy and fell head-first into veterinary pharmacy.
While in graduate school, Natalie realized that if you go to a traditional ‘big box’ pharmacy, the pharmacist behind the counter probably does not know how to care for your animal. Through no fault of their own, they haven’t been educated in veterinary pharmacy. From that point on, she knew she had found her calling.
Natalie has spent years envisioning a veterinary pharmacy that brings an unprecedented depth of expertise and service to the community veterinary industry. Today, Realo Veterinary Pharmacy has become the local place for veterinarians to turn to—a place they can enlist expert advice, collaboration, and the gold standard in compounded products.
Natalie Young lives in Raleigh, NC, with her husband, Hunter, her daughter, Taylor, and their happy dog, Bogey. You can read more about her work here.
