What have you done previously in your career?
I worked as a chef for 4.5 years, as that was my original trade. I got into pharmacy after wanting a career with more sociable hours and a community focus.

How long have you been working in pharmacy?
I’ve had a career in pharmacy for over 10 years!

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Something that scares them, as it keeps the heart young!

What brought you to Community Care Chemist?
I really liked the idea of working for a not-for-profit organisation, and at Community Care Chemist, I love that it supports and gives back to the community every day.

What are you most passionate about in your job?
I love the opportunity to be involved in the care of our customers, being able to provide them with a product or whole health solution that they need to help them get better. There’s always something new to learn every day!

What do you like to do outside of work?
I enjoy going to the beach and reading – sometimes both at the same time (if the weather is nice!)
