Dr. Turkesia Robertson-Jones lived in the Hansen Scholarship House while attending Florida A&M University from 1997-2005. She cherishes fond memories of gatherings between the FAMU and FSU scholarship houses where she met people that she is still friends with today.
Dr. Robertson-Jones received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from FAMU and has etched a career in nuclear, retail, and state government pharmacy. She is currently the Director of Pharmacy for a Managed Care Organization in Georgia!
Today, Dr. Robertson-Jones lives in Atlanta and enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. In fact, her husband was her college sweetheart and they met while he was visiting friends in the Hansen and FL Retail houses! She actively serves the community by mentoring pharmacy students, supporting higher education through her church’s scholarship program, and giving back to FAMU and SSF.
For Dr. Robertson-Jones, “Living at SSF prepared me to manage a household through budgeting, meal preparation, conflict resolution, time management, flexibility and cultural awareness. It also prepared me for parenthood.”
