Nick Descamps is not just another employee at Essential Wellness Pharmacy, but the son of another employee, Becky Descamps, who is also featured here. Nick has not been with us for over 18 months now, not nearly as long as his mother and will not be here much longer as he will be graduating this year from Bradley University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Nick is working part-time at the pharmacy while attending Bradley University full-time and planning on leaving after graduation to pursue his dream designing commercial jet engines with a company in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Nick loves getting the opportunity help people and make a difference. He loves seeing people leave the pharmacy with a smile on their face._ He also enjoys the lab environment which is why he plans on being an engineer. Nick hopes to help build hybrid cars and make the world a better place for us all while helping the environment.
Another of Nick’s passions is eating…he loves pizza, chocolate…especially dark chocolate. Give Nick some chocolate covered espresso beans if you want to get on his good side. He also love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Milky Way Dark Chocolate bars. Nick prefers Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse or Two25 restaurants when he dines out in the Peoria area or if he’s in Chicago, you could find him at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria.
Nick loves to play his guitar and the three “R’s”: reading, running and rock climbing. You might also find Nick hiking some local trails on a sunny day especially if they lead to the top of a hill or mountain. That’s one of Nick’s favorite places to hang out.
Some of Nick’s favorite movies include: The Blues Brothers and Steven King adaption, The Shawshank Redemption. When Nick listens to tunes his favorites include songs by Pink Floyd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Pearl Jam. Just to name a few.
