Meet Our Pharmacist

Josiah Howell, PharmD, RPh

Josiah Howell's journey began in West Monroe, Louisiana, where he spent his formative years and completed his education at West Monroe High School. During his time in high school, he embarked on several life-changing medical mission trips to Mexico, organized by his church. These transformative experiences ignited a deep-seated passion within Josiah, a passion for serving others and making a meaningful impact through the field of pharmacy.

Motivated by his newfound sense of purpose, Josiah pursued his dream of becoming a pharmacist by enrolling at The University of Louisiana at Monroe and subsequently attending The ULM College of Pharmacy. With unwavering determination and a relentless pursuit of knowledge, he worked diligently towards his goal, culminating in his graduation in May of 2015 with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

Josiah married a fellow pharmacist who brought him down south with her to continue his professional journey in the vibrant community of Zachary, where he dedicated five years of his career at Medical Pharmacy West, serving the needs of the local community. His unwavering commitment to patient care, strong work ethic, and compassionate approach to pharmacy practice earned him a solid reputation among colleagues and community members alike.

Now, as Josiah sets his sights on the next chapter of his professional life, he is thrilled to join the esteemed team at Hometown Pharmacy of Zachary. Armed with years of experience, a wealth of knowledge, and a steadfast commitment to improving lives through pharmaceutical care, Josiah is eager to continue his mission of providing exceptional healthcare services to the Zachary community.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Josiah finds immense joy and fulfillment in his personal life. He shares a beautiful bond with his wife, Kristin, and together they are raising three wonderful children, Ella, Bennett, and Leland. Together, they are excited to watch Josiah serve the community of Zachary and provide high-quality healthcare services.
