P.D.,FASCP CEO/Owner of Bellard ‘s Pharmacy & Home Medical Supply
Aurdie K. Bellard began his career as a Pharmacist at Begneaud’s Pharmacy in Lafayette after graduation in 1988. In 1991, he came back to Eunice, his hometown and birthplace, to work at Family Drug Center. He was given the opportunity to purchase the pharmacy in 2000 and so Bellard’s Family Pharmacy was born!. Having worked in the health industry for many years locally he saw the need for a reliable medical equipment & supply business. In 2006 he started Bellard’s Home Medical Supply and with it’s growth in 2008 he built the current building (located behind Bellard’s Pharmacy). After having the position of PIC for 25 years (15yrs at Bellard’s & 10yrs Family Drug Center) Aurdie decided to spend more time governing daily operations of the pharmacy and medical supply. He currently is the President Elect to the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Pharmacy Association . He is dedicated to keeping the independent pharmacies in business and thriving by helping to pass bills pertaining to the practice of pharmacy. Aurdie loves his community and enjoys fulfilling their needs with both healthy medications & medical supplies. What he enjoys most about his pharmacy is observing his qualified wonderful staff perform their jobs while taking pride in their work. When Aurdie isn’t at work or with his family you can usually find him on a local golf course. Meditation, spending time with God, and family and playing golf are Aurdie’s idea of relaxation.
Aurdie has four children, Blaise 26 (Fiancee- Lisa Daigle & daughter Jaclyn), Adrienne 23, Amelia 13 & John Bradley 11. Aurdie is engaged to Denise W. McDaniel. Aurdie’s fiancee, Denise, has 3 daughters, a son in law and one granddaughter .
Blaise Bellard has recently joined Bellard’s Pharmacy & Home Medical Supply as the Warehouse/Inventory Manager. Even though Blaise is a fairly new employee he is no stranger to the business. Blaise helped his father/owner Aurdie Bellard out with deliveries and such when he was in college. Blaise makes sure the inventory is ordered, arrives and is checked out efficiently. Blaise says that one of the things he enjoys most about working at Bellard’s is the fact that it’s a good family atmosphere for employees and customers. He adds that he enjoys seeing the business succeed with all the great people(employees) working behind it!! When Blaise is not working he is enjoying LSU football, baseball, golf or hunting. He and his fiancee Lisa Daigle recently bought a home in Eunice which they share with Lisa’s young daughter Jacelyn.
Ashley Royer is one of the friendly faces that will greet you as you enter Bellard’s Pharmacy. If you hear laughter as you walk in the pharmacy it is most likely Ashley’s contagious laughter! Ashley is a cashier with loads of customer service experience. If Ashley doesn’t know the answer to your question or concern she WILL try her best to find an answer somehow!
In the 3 years that Ashley has been a Bellard’s employee, she says interacting with customers, helping them with all their health needs and building relationships with these people is what she likes most about working at Bellard’s Pharmacy.
Ashley takes prescription orders, checks customers out and helps with gifts, skincare & doTERRA oils. Ashley takes a special interest in learning more about skincare & essential oils so she can pass along her knowledge to the customers.
Ashley is the single mother of a son and daughter and they enjoy living in Eunice. When not working Ashley enjoys the outdoors, cooking with friends and spending time with her children.
If you are a customer of Bellard’s Pharmacy you have most probably met Viola Boudreaux, known as Mrs. Vi, or as Aurdie(Bellard’s owner) calls her, “Momma Vi”.
Her friendly and helpful face has graced Bellard’s Pharmacy since the beginning of its conception in 2000! As a matter of fact Ms Vi sort of came with the business. She was already working with Aurdie when it became Bellard’s Pharmacy, formally named Wimberly Drugs. She has been working in the Pharmacy Technician capacity for 35 years and has been a Certified Pharmacy Technician since 1997. She can be seen behind the counter typing scripts, counting pills, managing inventory, answering the phone, greeting customers and most of all keeping the customers satisfied and happy!!
Ms Vi is a sort of “matriarch” figure for Bellard’s Pharmacy for a few important reasons: she enjoys making the customers happy, satisfied and comfortable, she is a “mother” figure to many people including Aurdie. But mostly because she takes pride in her profession and she generates a strong, “old fashioned” moral work ethic that we can all appreciate!
When Ms. Vi is not at the pharmacy she enjoys reading, socializing at Rubies Restaurant with her sister, Joanne and friends.
Ms Vi is married to Gerald “T-Boy” Boudreaux and has 2 children, Rhonda and Troy, and is the proud grandmother of 3 and great grandmother of 3!!
Ms Vi Invites everyone to come by Bellard’s Pharmacy and see what’s new and what we have to offer you and your loved ones!

She spends her days dispensing and reviewing medication for safety and efficacy. She provides medication counseling and administers immunizations for patients. Dana is also a huge part of our Aesthetic Team. Dana helps with seminars and counseling with skin concerns.
Dana says that after working for a chain pharmacy for 11 years, Bellard's has been such a refreshing change. She said Independent Pharmacies allow you to give more personalized service and it's not "all about the numbers," as big chains are. She loves the staff and quotes "they have been like family to me!"
In her spare time, Dana enjoys Pinterest, shopping, decorating and anything that includes crafts.
Dana and her husband, Shawn, are quite busy with her two beautiful and growing daughters Hailey and Avery. Living in the quiet, country town of Iota, "the little town with a big heart," helps to keep Dana's life balanced and happy!
