Luke Dantuono, Lead Technician

Luke’s passion for pharmacy began in 2003 when he started working for a major retail pharmacy chain. His passion quickly intensified, and within a short period of time, Luke was promoted to Lead Technician. This allowed him the opportunity to expand his pharmacy scope and teach new technicians entering the field. Over the next several years, Luke honed his skills and enthusiastically embraced every opportunity to learn new facets of the business. The moment he began compounding, he knew he had found the area of pharmacy he wanted to concentrate on. The limited opportunities to compound on a full-time basis in a major chain setting prompted Luke to begin working in a private compounding setting and he has never looked back! Luke has become successfully proficient in the ways of compound formula building and the computer software supporting compounding. That, coupled with his concern for his patient’s health and welfare and desire to work in a lab environment, led him to Nationwide Pharmacy. Luke completed compounding classes at the American College of Apothecaries (ACA) in 2016.
