Diana Smith Lischin graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy in 1986. She worked part-time at Coats Pharmacy starting in 1980 and throughout her college career. Although she moved to the Northeast after graduation, she made her way back home in 1988 to work in the family pharmacy and assumed full ownership in 2005. She is originally from Willow Springs but now resides on a family farm in Harnett County. She is married to Brian and has two daughters, Elyssa and Mahlon who both work in the pharmacy. She considers herself to be very lucky to work for herself in a small town and to have developed long-lasting and meaningful relationships with both customers and staff.

My name is Rae Bragg-Jones and I live with my husband, Frank, in Willow Spring, NC. After graduating from the UNC School of Pharmacy in 1982, I spent the first part of my career working for chain drugstores and long-term care pharmacies. I finally found my way back to family-owned independent retail stores after realizing I missed the friendly, compassionate environment offered in this type of setting. My first job ever was in the local drugstore in my hometown of Windsor, NC and that’s where my love for the profession began. I’ve been lucky enough to work at Coats Pharmacy for 1 ½ years. It has allowed me to practice pharmacy the way it should be one-on-one with our customers. I enjoy working with the great team we have at Coats Pharmacy and together we strive to keep our customers healthy and happy! That is what it’s all about!
