Why did you choose pharmacy as a career?
In high school, I always knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the health industry. Not only would I be able to make ends meet, I’d have the opportunity to help individuals in my community at the same time. Besides that, science also became a subject that I excelled in and was extremely fascinated with. As a result, pharmacy naturally became my career of choice.

How long have you been working in pharmacy?
I have been working in pharmacy for almost 9 years. I first began as a pharmacy student at a local chemist in 2010 before completing my internship in hospital at the end of 2014. Since then, I have returned to working in community pharmacy.

What brought you to Community Care Chemist?
I was very impressed with the way that Community Care Chemist really looked out for their customers that I wanted to be part of the team. It is unique in comparison to many other pharmacies because they don’t solely focus just on dispensing medications but take on a WHOLE HEALTH and WHOLE HEART approach. This can be seen through the quality services provided by each and every member of the team.

Furthermore, unlike many regular chemists which have most of their qualified pharmacists only working behind the dispensary counter, Community Care Chemists always have pharmacists readily available at the front. This allows pharmacists the opportunity to properly provide invaluable advice and knowledge on whatever medications or health concerns you may have.

What are you most passionate about in your job?
Making a difference to someone's health! It is so rewarding to be in a position where I get to be able to help people improve their health.

What's a fun fact about yourself/or what do you like to do outside of work?
In my spare time I love trying new cuisines, travelling and watching a good movie!
