Executive Residents


Krystalyn Weaver, PharmD, JD

Krystalyn Weaver, PharmD, JD is an associate at Sidley Austin, LLP in Washington DC where she is a member of the healthcare group. Prior to this role, she served as the Vice President of Policy and Operations for the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA). In that role, she worked with the state pharmacy associations and NASPA’s national partners to track, trend, and communicate health care policy information and best practices. She focused her work on researching pharmacists’ scope of practice and payment for pharmacists’ patient care services.

Weaver served as the American Pharmacists Association Foundation’s Executive Resident from 2012 to 2013. She earned her Bachelor’s and Doctorate of Pharmacy degrees from The University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio and her Juris Doctor degree from George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia.

“The Executive Fellowship program provided a springboard to launch my career in pharmacy association management. The connections I made during my year at the APhA Foundation led not only to my subsequent position with the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA), but also enhanced my work there. My links to APhA staff and leadership forged new opportunities for collaborations between NASPA and APhA and helped me to better support the state pharmacy associations’ relationships with APhA. In my new career as a healthcare attorney, echoes of my time with the APhA Foundation ring through in the form of project management and leadership skills and knowledge of the broader healthcare system.”
