James Sheets, PharmD

Chief Executive Officer

In 2001, I made the decision to specialize in infusion pharmacy, because it afforded me the opportunity to work closely with individuals in need. What I didn’t know at the time, is that this path would lead me to build a company whose primary mission is improving the lives of others. You see, the patients we care for at CSI Pharmacy can best be described as family to us. What I find most rewarding is the strong relationships that are formed with those with complex rare diseases and with their communities. These patients and groups have inspired me on a personal level and have gifted me with a passion and purpose in life.  I feel honored when we are chosen to be someone’s specialty pharmacy and it makes us all determined to provide the highest level of care possible. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work along-side some of the finest healthcare professionals, patient organizations, and industry partners in the world. I enjoy helping to advance the field by serving on national committees and I especially love presenting at patient conferences and local support groups. I am always available to meet with you and I want to be the first to personally invite you to join the CSI Pharmacy family.

Barry Buls, PharmD

Chief Operations Officer

I became a pharmacist because I thought it would be a fulfilling way to provide for my family in a trusted profession. After graduating from pharmacy school, I worked community and hospital pharmacy for 15 years, but I didn’t feel I was able to connect with my patients like I wanted to. I was given the opportunity to move into the home infusion side of pharmacy and found I was able to spend more time with my patients; and get to see the bigger picture of the care and needs that were being met, or often ignored or denied. When we founded CSI Pharmacy, we did so with 5 patients that had been denied care by their previous home infusion agency because they were too difficult to care for; or didn’t have the ability to afford their medications and supplies. Our team decided day one that we would make it our personal mission to find the patients who have fallen through the cracks of the medical system and find any way possible to provide the needed therapy for them. We chose autoimmune diseases as our primary focus of care and started working within these communities with physicians, nurses, and patients to provide the level of care required by these life changing diseases. I am honored to call CSI Pharmacy my home and honored to serve our patients in the best of times and the worst of times. I am truly happy when a patient tells us that their lives are getting easier or better because we have made a difference in their care. I am blessed to work with such a great team of like-minded people who have dedicated their lives to making a difference in a patient’s care.

Mark McMurry, PharmD

Chief Financial Officer

My first experience with the local pharmacist was when my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer when I was only 13 years old. Even then, as a young man, I recognized the important role that the pharmacist played in the care of my dad. Several years later as a high school student, I worked for our neighborhood pharmacist in his pharmacy and gained valuable insight into what it takes to fill the shoes of the pharmacist. I knew at that point that I had found my career choice. Over the years, I have been blessed to be a part of many people's lives as their pharmacist. I have also experienced the pride of pharmacy ownership where I got to extend a much deeper level of service to my patients. These folks were my village, my extended family, and we went through life's ups and downs together. Most of my experience in pharmacy existed within the community setting until 2013, when I had the unique opportunity through a colleague to learn about specialty pharmacy and the drugs used to treat autoimmune diseases. I never realized the great struggles that exist for people with autoimmune diseases as they are forced to navigate a complicated healthcare system to receive lifesaving treatments. Seeing a large need for a smaller, patient focused pharmacy provider in the marketplace, my partners and I assembled a team and started CSI Pharmacy. In a relatively short period of time, CSI Pharmacy is growing to be a recognized name in the industry. Although we have experienced rapid growth over the past years, we will always treat our patients as if they are members of our family.

Of course, we require a little help from our friends...

Michelle Vogel, MPA

VP of Patient Advocacy & Provider Relations

I became a patient advocate because I enjoy helping others in need of a "voice" when life becomes so overwhelming due to their disease and their healthcare needs. I can personally relate to the need of having someone help during the most overwhelming and vulnerable times of your life because I am also a patient with rare autoimmune and connective tissue disorders. When I started my career, working for a member of Congress, I learned how to navigate our government programs by first doing casework and later managing all healthcare policy and reimbursement. I became sensitive to the needs of the patient community, but it hit home when my own heath was deteriorating. It took over 15 years to begin to get the right diagnoses, while working for a national patient organization representing a rare genetic disease. I learned that as a patient, it doesn't matter what your disease is; it is the journey you go through trying to find a doctor who can diagnose you, hoping their is a treatment for your disease, praying that your quality of life will improve, and hoping that if you have insurance it will cover the treatment and that it will be affordable. As a patient, we don't know where to go for help, who to ask for help, and all too often we fall through the cracks. When I joined the CSI family, they understood the importance of putting patients first and ensuring that patients have the tools to navigate our healthcare system, assisting in finding affordable health insurance, ensuring affordable and accessible lifesaving therapies, and most importantly having someone dedicated to make sure patients don't fall through the cracks. I am honored to be that person to help as many members of the community to have the future they deserve!

Jack Lemley, PharmD

Vice President of Specialty Pharmacy Services

I started my career serving as a pharmacy technician in a large hospital system. I worked closely with the pharmacist and witnessed first-hand how they made a difference by reviewing medication profiles and solving problems. This experience led me to pursue a future in pharmacy with a focus on clinical pharmacy and disease state management. In 2014, I joined CSI Pharmacy as a clinical pharmacist specializing in emerging therapies for chronic rare diseases. I work closely with drug manufacturers and biotech companies; to help patients gain access to their latest advancements. I find helping patients gain access to life changing therapies is incredibly rewarding.

Brittany Mann, RN, BSN

Senior Director of Nursing

I became a nurse because I enjoy caring for others during the most vulnerable time in life; when someone’s health and well-being is compromised. Little did I know when I started my career in nursing that I would soon find myself in a vulnerable state and my health was compromised. In 2015, I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a rare autoimmune disease that affects the voluntary muscles. After several treatment modalities I began to receive intravenous immunoglobulin also known as IVIG. While undergoing the first round of IVIG (a four-day process), I began to think that I would like to become an IVIG infusion nurse. I understand the frustration and challenges faced, as a result of an autoimmune disease. I understand the importance of a kind and compassionate nurse during such a trying time in one’s life, especially during the IVIG process which is used to combat the disease. I began to work for the agency that provided nursing care during my infusions. I enjoy conversing with the patients but, more importantly, we have something in common; the shared bond of a rare disease. It means so much to be able to relate to each other in ways that others cannot. I have found my passion and calling through my own trials and tribulations and feel compelled to help others through their journeys. I am blessed to be part of the CSI Family where the mission is truly about taking care of the patients.

Roxanne Ward, RN, IgCN

Director of Patient & Provider Education

I have always experienced great joy from helping others, so naturally, becoming a nurse has always been a dream of mine. I started my career in Neonatal Intensive Care where I learned extensive critical thinking skills that benefit me to this day. I became a part of the CSI family in 2016 where I quickly became involved in the patient teaching process and recently became an Ig Certified Nurse. My greatest joy is teaching and caring for our patients and being a part of their medical journey. Lucky for me, my childhood dream has now become my reality.

Natalie Edwards, C.Ph.T

Director of Insurance & Reimbursement Services

I started working in pharmacy almost 3 decades ago. I was one of the first pharmacy technicians to ever practice in my hometown of Nashville, Arkansas. I loved the relationships formed with my neighbors and customers; and saw firsthand how our pharmacy helped improve their lives. In 2001, I made the decision to join one of our pharmacists in starting a home infusion service. It was a big change from what I was familiar with; but felt it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was responsible for the coordination between the physician, pharmacist, nurse, and patient. Once all was in place, I would meet the home infusion nurse in the patient’s home and assist them in caring for the patient. I was tasked with ensuring that the medicine was in a useable form, that all necessary supplies were on hand and readily available to the nurse. It was spending time with those in need, in their own home that I formed a connection with people in an entirely new way. I began to see the therapy they received as being life changing and my passion became ensuring no patient was ever left behind. At CSI Pharmacy, we see many patients who suffer with chronic neurological conditions. I too have a neurological disease and understand the rollercoaster of emotions that chronic illness can produce. When I am introduced to new patients who need life changing therapies, I comfort them by letting them know I will be their voice with the insurance companies. I let them know I am their advocate, and that I will use my vast experience in navigating the system to make sure they get the best treatment possible covered.

Dale Pickard, PharmD

Director of Pharmacy/CSI Pharmacy Texarkana

I became a pharmacist to help people to make their life a little better. I started my career in hospital pharmacy, but there was little to no patient interaction. I moved into retail, where I started at a big box store, but I found there was so little time to serve anyone, we only had time to fill a prescription as fast as we could and move on, with only the minimum required for each patient. Later I worked for several independent pharmacies and discovered not only did I like this better, but opportunities to help people were more plentiful. I came to work for CSI Pharmacy when it was just a small-town pharmacy with one location and have had the pleasure of helping it grow to a multi-location pharmacy that serves patients in over 25 states. What makes CSI Pharmacy special to me is that we are a family that works together. We make a difference in so many people’s lives; I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Vanessa Noble

Intake Services Coordinator

I chose to work in healthcare, so that I can make a difference in people’s lives. I have always found caring for and helping others very satisfying and rewarding. My first opportunity in this field was in the nutrition department for a large hospital. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the patients, and especially experiencing their excitement once they were better. During my time at the hospital, I became close friends with a pharmacy technician who would share with me how they assist in filling orders and preparing medications. I received my pharmacy technician certification and joined CSI Pharmacy where I have held a number of positions working closely with the pharmacists and nurses ensuring patients receive their specialty infusion medications at their home. As CSI Pharmacy’s Intake Coordinator, I am often the first person a patient speaks to at our pharmacy, and I can start to help them feel at ease much sooner in the process. I get to know all of the patients I work with, and use my special knowledge of supplies and medications to make sure they have a successful experience. I feel empowered to know that I am part of a team that Is personally improving patient care.
