Studied pharmacy at University of South Australia in Adelaide
Worked as a Pharmacy Assistant and Webster packer extraordinaire while studying pharmacy.
Why did you join the Star Group?
I was working for a pharmacy that was acquired by the Star Group and after scrutinizing the company, its mission statement and its values, realized I would like to remain working with them.
Why should customers shop at Star Discount Chemist?
We strive to provide the excellent service of a community pharmacy, with the prices of a discounter. It’s a win-win situation! We aim to treat all our customers like family, and to provide them with the services we would want for our own relatives (free delivery, free medication management services etc).
How are you different to any other discounter pharmacy?
With our competitive price matching policy, we level the price field whilst providing the care and ambience of a local community pharmacy.
What do you enjoy most about your current position?
The community interaction and relationships built with both customers and local doctors. The flexibility of working hours allows me to spend valuable time with my family even working full time.
What’s your favourite quote?
“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.”
