    My sister was a pharmacy tech for Walgreens in Seattle then Colorado, she now has some desk job in a corporate office. I'll shoot her and email and ask for you.

    A pharmacy tech will make on average 20k-25k a year.

    Just curious, are you planning on going to college? A degree in pharmacy will probably get you over 90k a year.

    And I don't think PTs are in high demand right now. Searching our database here at work is only pulling 4 jobs nationwide, all of which are based out of Wisconsin.
