Like his grandfather, he set out to graduate from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS).  But shortly afterwards St. Onge began following a different path.

In this episode of Occupation Station, which Rueckert Advertising and Public Relations produces for ACPHS, he talks about why he decided to pursue interests both in drug development and in business, ultimately adding an MBA to his credentials.

St. Onge is now director of business development for Paratek Phamaceuticals. He wears a lot of hats and says he gets great satisfaction in knowing that he is part of a team helping to deliver life-saving remedies to those in need.

The 2009 grad has great advice for ACPHS students about seeking out mentors, taking risks, and using rotations as a way to grow. He sees a bright future for ACPHS alumni, saying the sky is the limit for those with a Pharm D.
