Pharm.D. Pharmacist in Charge
I was born and raised in Gettysburg, and grew up in the very store I work in today. My parents, Ep and Jan Sieler, owned Jones Drug for 30+ years before selling to Jim Stephens in the early 1990’s. After graduating from Gettysburg High School in 1999, I attended SDSU in Brookings, receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2003 and my Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2005. After graduation, I worked as an independent contractor for Indian Health Service in Eagle Butte, SD, for exactly one year before coming home to Vilas in Gettysburg. I am a member of the American Pharmacist’s Association and the South Dakota Pharmacist’s Association, and was honored as the 2015 Young Pharmacist of the Year. I couldn't be happier living in the community I grew up in, serving customers I have known my whole life! It’s a privilege for me to take care of the community that shaped me into the person I am, and many of the same people who took care of me growing up – teachers, coaches, neighbors, and friends!

I had always wanted to go into the medical field but just never knew what. I had shadowed a few different fields and felt like pharmacy is where I was meant to be. In turn, I transferred to South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD. From here, I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmaceutical Science. In 2009, I then graduated with my Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D.)
After graduation, I started my first job right here at Vilas Pharmacy in Pierre, SD. I work at both the retail location and the long term care location in Pierre. I also do the pharmacy consulting for Kelly’s Retirement Home in Pierre. I enjoy working in the two different types of atmospheres, there is always something different and exciting every day.
