Meet Chris Schulte, BPharm

Chief Executive Officer

Everwell Specialty Pharmacy was founded in 2003 by pharmacist Chris Schulte. A Louisiana native, Chris attended pharmacy school at Northeast Louisiana University, which later became the University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Pharmacy. Now, as a successful pharmacist and business owner, he owns and operates a compounding pharmacy like no other that serves patients across the country.

After moving to Pensacola shortly after completing pharmacy school, Chris became a retail pharmacist at a grocery store pharmacy. It was through this experience that he realized the patient education system was broken, and he wanted to fix it. Chris would achieve this through founding Pensacola Apothecary, a compounding pharmacy where he could ensure patients received the mentorship they needed to correctly and effectively use their medications to achieve better outcomes.

Always willing to take on a challenge, Chris thrived at making compound prescriptions and treatments that other pharmacies couldn’t (or wouldn’t) make, and Pensacola Apothecary became a premier provider of bio-identical hormones for thousands of women and men who sought hormone therapy but were concerned by the risks of using conventional hormones. After attending numerous continuing education seminars on the benefits of bio-identical hormones, Chris became a strong supporter of patients’ rights to bio-identical hormone therapies. He lobbies annually on Capitol Hill with the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists to educate politicians on why these therapies are important to patients and to help protect and maintain patient access to them.

Doing the Right thing for our patients

Since founding Pensacola Apothecary, Chris has always used outside-the-box thinking to propel his business. Once Pensacola Apothecary outgrew its first small building, he renamed his company to Everwell Specialty Pharmacy and moved into a 15,000 square foot building complete with a state-of-the-art lab and a team of pharmacists, scientists, account managers and pharmacy assistants. His success as a pharmacist and business owner is closely linked to his belief that earning the trust of patients is more important than anything. He also believes in providing innovative pharmaceutical therapies and ongoing monitoring and care to patients with hard-to-treat conditions, which is why patients and providers trust Everwell to pioneer successful therapies for chronic and severe infections.

“Do the right thing for the patient” has always been his mantra. Chris believes in being honest and upfront with patients about implications of lifestyle choices and potential side-effects of medications. His vision for Everwell Specialty Pharmacy is to earn the respect of patients through honesty, innovation and forward-thinking. If a medication isn’t working, Everwell pharmacists want to figure out why. When other courses of treatments have failed, Everwell works with healthcare providers to find creative solutions. This is an important part of what makes Everwell Specialty Pharmacy different and why patients return again and again.

Chris resides in Gulf Breeze, Florida with his wife, Jenny, and their two children.
