THE COMMUNITY is delighted to welcome Lindsey Compton-Crabtree who has returned to Portola as its pharmacist. Lindsey was raised in Portola by parents, Brenda and Matt Compton. She graduated from Portola High School with the class of 2012. She graduated as undergrad from Willainette in Salem, Oregon and went on to attend Pharmacy School at University of Montana, graduating spring of 2020. She purchased a home in Portola and worked at Rite Aid in Quincy one year.
Her parents, of course, are thrilled and her business partner and co-owner is her mother, Brenda. Her sister, Emily Compton works as media at Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Coop.
Lindsey is married to Dusty, who is also a pharmacist and works at CVS in Reno and hopes to be here shortly when finished with his CA license.
Both Lindsey and Dusty are “big sports people,” who love basketball, volleyball and are big boaters and like to fish.
Lindsey feels lucky to have the whole experience and to come back with a "new appreciation for where we live."
