MUSCATINE, Iowa–Whenever Nicole Duehlmeyer thought about what she wanted to do when she grew up, she knew she wanted to go into healthcare. As she worked her way through Muscatine Community School District, Duehlmeyer developed a love for math and science, helping her realize a career in pharmacy would suit her well.

Duehlmeyer attended Drake University, where she earned a masters of business administration and doctor of pharmacy degree. Currently, Duehlmeyer works as the pharmacy manager for Hy-Vee. Even before she took on that role, she had years of experience working at Hy-Vee. At 14, Duehlmeyer started out as a curtesy clerk bagging up customers’ groceries. Over time, she worked her way through a variety of positions and enjoyed each different experience.

As pharmacy manager, Duehlmeyer plays an active role in making sure operations run smoothly and patients have the best outcomes possible. From managing staff and supplies, to communicating with doctors and insurance companies, to providing community outreach, and making sure prescriptions get filled correctly, Duehlmeyer uses all of her talents to help her coworkers and clients everyday.

Part of a pharmacist’s job includes giving people vaccinations. Since COVID-19 vaccines first arrived in Muscatine, Duehlmeyer has worked hard to help get them to community members as quickly as possible. Since February, Duehlmeyer has busily worked behind the scenes to coordinate clinics and individual vaccine appointments when vaccine shipments arrive through the federal pharmacy partnership program, billing insurance companies, providing educational webinars about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines, and of course, actually administering them to people willing to receive them.

In everything she does, Duehlmeyer values, “helping to provide a safe environment for the community to be provided with medication, immunizations, and education,” and, “making a difference in people’s lives by getting to know them throughout the years of providing services.”

Duehlmeyer, her husband, and triplet sons continue to live in Muscatine and to enjoy its small town feel and all of the family friendly opportunities it provides them. “We love seeing people that we know and building relationships outside of the workplace,” she shared.
