Meet Your Pharmacists
Brad Galli, R.Ph. Pharmacist-In-Charge
My name is Brad Galli and I've been working in DuQuoin as a pharmacist for 25 years. However, I was born and raised in West Frankfort, IL. At an early age I became fascinated with chemistry; at the age of 11 I was given my first chemistry set. My love for chemistry continued through high school which lead me to my career path in pharmacy.
After graduating from West Frankfort High School I studied at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. I received my pharmacy degree in 1988 and shortly after began working in DuQuoin. My wife, Jamie, and I moved to DuQuoin 16 years ago to raise our children, Airika and Alexis. In my free time I enjoy riding my Harley, fishing, and spending time with my family and friends... and of course our dog, Gus!
Michael Downs, R.Ph., Pharmacist
My name is Michael Downs and I have been a pharmacist for 40 years; spending much of my career here in DuQuoin! I had always enjoyed chemistry and biological sciences and I knew I wanted to be in a field that I could help others. So after graduating from Waterloo High School I moved to Saint Louis to purse a degree in pharmacy.
I have a son, Joshua. And when I'm not working at the pharmacy I enjoy reading, listening to music and traveling.
Erhardt Heisner, Pharm.D., Pharmacist
My name is Erhardt Heisner and I've recently moved back to Southern, Illinois where I was born and raised. I graduated from Pickneyville Community High School in 2007. Thereafter, I attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy, where I graduated with my Doctorate of Pharmacy in 2013.
I've worked in a pharmacy for eight years, three of those years as a pharmacist. While attending pharmacy school I interned at CVS. After graduation I moved to Saint Louis where I worked for a Shop'n Save as a staff pharmacist for two years. I'm excited to be in Southern Illinois helping those in my community and surrounding communities. I became a pharmacist because I wanted to work in healthcare and help patients on a daily basis and now I have the opportunity to provide quality patient care and help improve outcomes.
When I'm not working at pharmacy I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy traveling and various sporting events.
