About me: Laura Cudd has made a lifetime of learning. Learning to care for patients not only through evidence based medicine but also through listening to patients and understanding individual needs. Specifically, Laura earned her BS Pharmacy from OU in 1991, and her Masters and PhD from OSU in 1999. Laura has a passion for reading and research which led her to pursue a career as a clinical pharmacist and clinical pharmacy manager at Integris Health and Oklahoma Heart Hospital. She has now embarked on a career as an independent pharmacy owner, bridging the gap between hospital and home by taking her years of experience in transitional care out into the community.
On a personal note, Laura and Richard bought Asbury Pharmacy in 2015. They have 3 boys, Dylan, Ryan and Sean. The Cudds enjoy Reds baseball, Sooner sports, Thunder basketball, Celebrity Attractions theater productions, Oklahoma Ballet/philharmonic, wine country travels and yoga!
