Jennifer Palazzolo, RPh has been in pharmacy since she was 14 years old at the local independent in her home town of Long Beach, NY. After spending all of her career as a pharmacist she got back into independent pharmacy and started to love going to work again. In August of 2013 she decided she wanted to open her own pharmacy and used her passion for independent pharmacy to get everything done and open the doors of Flatirons Family Pharmacy in April of 2014. Her strong belief in the pharmacist-patient relationship has led her and her staff to embrace functional medicine and branding Flatirons Family Pharmacy as a wellness destination. Jen lives in Boulder, CO with her husband and two children ages 12 and 15.
