Dr Amanda Blankenship

Dr Amanda Blankenship was born in southwest Virginia and works at the University of Pikeville (UPIKE) Kentucky College of Optometry and the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. She holds a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford University and a PharmD from the Appalachian College of Pharmacy. Teaching in Pharmacology is a passion for her, and she feels blessed to be able to work in a field where service and people are at the core.

Dr Blankenship has taught at multiple levels of education for 12 years and has loved each level. Working as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacology at UPIKE is her primary role, but she still works as needed as a Staff Pharmacist at a local independent pharmacy. Between the two careers in pharmacy, she volunteers within her institution and within her community.
