Faith Maignan is an energetic, colorful, free-spirited Tallahassee native, wife of JGF's Coach Chris Maignan. After high school, she went on to complete her undergraduate coursework and also obtain her Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. It was here in her second year of pharmacy school that she met Coach Chris and fell in love with his skillful cooking. During her time as a pharmacy student Faith also discovered a strong interest in Infectious Disease, specifically HIV and the public health issues surrounding patient care. This interest was pursued by the completion of a summer research fellowship at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, AIDS Healthcare Foundation Pharmacy internship, and CDC pharmacy rotation in Atlanta, GA.
After receiving her PharmD, she briefly worked at Orlando VA Medical Center, but not soon after decided to relocate back home to Tallahassee to be closer to family. Her pharmacy career in Tallahassee began at Capital Regional Medical Center, where she worked as a clinical pharmacist both in the main pharmacy and on hospital floors, assisting physicians and nurses with drug information questions. After two years at CRMC, Faith decided to pursue a position at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, where she currently works as a clinical pharmacist primarily at TMH’s Outpatient Cancer Center.
Throughout her life, Faith has always strived to balance the studying and intensity of her pharmacy career with dancing, exercising, and overall pushing to maintain emotional and spiritual health. With her husband by her side, she loves to laugh, meet new people, travel, eat great food, and search for new challenges. This past year, with the support of her husband, she decided to fully immerse herself into consistently exercising and pursuing her desire of becoming a Strong by Zumba (SBZ) instructor. She attends Coach Chris’ class Tuesdays and Thursdays and is excited to begin teaching SBZ at JGF very soon!
