The Pauline Montgomery Leadership Award is presented to the female independent owner, manager, or employee of an independent pharmacy who has demonstrated leadership in pharmacy, politics/advocacy, and community as well as showed involvement in PPA.

Grandizio graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Sciences in 1998. After starting her career working as a pharmacist for Rite Aid and Giant, Grandizio acquired Danville Pharmacy and became a member of a small, select group of female pharmacy owners.

She strives to give a positive personal experience to every patient at Danville Pharmacy. Whether she is interacting with her customers, managing her staff, or serving in various capacities as a member of Value Drug Company, her leadership shines as an example to all.

She serves as Chair of ValuePAC as well as a member of the Value Drug Regional Advisory Board, and is incredibly generous with support of her local community and beyond.

Founded in 1878, the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is a professional membership organization of more than 2,300 pharmacists and pharmacy students across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, representing almost all facets of pharmacy practice. As the leading voice of pharmacy in Pennsylvania, it promotes the profession through advocacy, education, and communication to enhance patient care and public health.
