My name is Ann and I am a staff pharmacist here at Town & Country Compounding Pharmacy. My official name is Hyun Jin Shin. I was born in Korea, grew up in Korea, New Zealand, New York, and now live in New Jersey. I went to an all-girls Catholic high school and graduated from Rutgers University Pharmacy School, class of 2018. I have worked at ten different retail pharmacies since college. I interned at a compounding pharmacy and realized how much I was interested in the fact that prescriptions can be individualized per patient’s needs. This is how I chose my career as a compounding pharmacist. I love talking to people in general and especially patients, as I can share my clinical/pharmacy experience and knowledge with those in need. I can picture myself as a compounding pharmacist in 30 years.
I have been working for Town and Country Compounding since we opened in Ridgewood 17 years ago. It has been a wonderful and enjoyable time of my life. When I first started, I was compounding all the sterile products. My love for cooking and following recipes paralleled my experience in the sterile room since we must follow formulas for compounding. As we grew over the years, we were able to hire licensed pharmacy technicians who now compound most of the orders. That allows me to consult with doctors and patients as well as overseeing our highly experienced techs. I look forward to the next chapter as we move to a larger, state of the art facility in Ramsey.
I have been with Town & Country Compounding Pharmacy since 2015. I graduated from St. John’s University in Queens, NY. My interest in compounding really started towards the end of pharmacy school when I landed an opportunity to work as a technician compounding mostly veterinarian and pediatric medications. It was exciting to know that what I made with my own hands was helping someone with their specific needs. I love that there is always something new to learn and that compounding offers innovative solutions to medication problems for patients of all types. This keeps all of us engaged and challenges us to be creative as healthcare providers. Exercising my creativity is very important to me. If not for pharmacy, I would probably have majored in art! When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, serving at my church, and testing new recipes.

I am a certified pharmacy technician with nine years of compounding experience. I love what I do and try to involve myself in everything I can. My main responsibilities involve compounding hazardous drugs such as hormones like testosterone. I’m also responsible for making sure non-sterile compounding technicians are properly trained in compounding safety. I also assist the pharmacists with the drug trials we often do. Whether it’s the day to day or the drug trials, a cream, or a capsule, I love making people feel better.
Outside of work, I’m currently going to school and my hobbies include much of what I do at work as I enjoy making bath and body products. The only things I enjoy more than that are spending time with my wife (who happens to be a pharmacist) and my best friend, Bandit my cat.
