Andrea Breyer

Supervising Pharmacist

Andrea Breyer, PharmD

Andrea is a lifelong resident of Alden and graduate of both St. John’s & Alden High School. She earned her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at SUNY Buffalo’s School of Pharmacy in 2010. From there Andrea worked in a community pharmacy in Rochester for 5 years before getting what she considers, the opportunity of a lifetime, to return home to Alden Pharmacy.

This is where she began her career, starting as a cashier, the technician, and working her way up to Pharmacy Intern under the expert guidance of her mentor, Ron Smith. It was her proudest moment when he told her she was the pharmacy’s first intern to graduate and return to work at the store as a fully licensed pharmacist. Andrea loves that everyone here feels like family, from her coworkers to the customers. She is honored to serve the community she grew up in, and continue the great tradition of this longstanding local business.

In her spare time, Andrea enjoys rooting hard for the Buffalo Bills and Sabres. She also loves traveling, spending time with her family, and enjoying everything Buffalo has to offer.
