John Thorne IV, PharmD, Pharmacist In-Charge
Born and raised in Columbia, SC, I am proud to call this place home. Having graduated from AC Flora High School, the University of South Carolina, and finally, the South Carolina College of Pharmacy in 2019, I have already had many incredible opportunities to serve the people of this great city and state. I am now looking forward to helping guide people through the safe and effective use of prescription and non-prescription medications at True Pharmacy on Devine.
Outside of work, I like spending time with my wife and dog, doing projects around the house, and visiting with friends and family. I also enjoy spending time on my wife’s family’s farm learning a little about agriculture in the state of South Carolina.
