Mel Odorzynski – Chief Operating Officer

Briefly describe the professional journey that led you to Aspen RxHealth. Early in my career, I joined a pharmacy start-up, that I was able to grow with for nearly 15 years, holding several different positions across operations, sales, marketing, strategy, and M&A. While it was an incredible experience, as the company grew, I found myself craving a return to the agile culture of a start-up. Once I learned about the innovation Aspen RxHealth was driving for our profession as pharmacists, I couldn’t resist joining, and am honored to lead operations alongside a stellar team.

Which famous quote would you pick to describe your personal business philosophy? “It is the ultimate luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a very clear path to happiness.” – Sheryl Sandberg

If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep?YouTube to watch my favorite comedians when I need a laugh. Google Tasks – I manage multiple to-do lists non-stop! ClassDojo – an app that my kids’ teachers use to send photos and updates throughout their school day.

Based on your experience in the pharmacy industry, why do you believe Aspen can make a big difference in this industry? My experience has led me to firmly believe that the most important value pharmacists can add to the healthcare system is our ability to identify and solve medication-related problems to make drugs work for people. Doing this well, which pharmacists are uniquely qualified to do, significantly improves health outcomes and decreases costs. Aspen RxHealth’s ability to match supply with demand and directly connect patients to pharmacists at scale is truly innovative and transformative.
