Karen Guenther
Compliance Inspector
Texas State Board of Pharmacy

I work for the Texas State Board of Pharmacy as a compliance inspector, going into pharmacies throughout northeast Texas to make sure they’re complying with state law. I started college at DCCCD, right after my son was born.

With my travel schedule, it’s really hard to be in a classroom, and even when I’m in town, my work hours are erratic. The strong point of taking courses online is the flexibility and freedom. I can just log on and do my homework at home or on the road in a hotel. Distance learning is the best option for me.

Karen Guenther, who earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and advertising from the University of Texas at Arlington, is earning an associate degree in accounting through online learning.
