My passion is to become an integral part of the community and ultimately help our community in any way we can. Kindness is at the forefront of our ethos at Bonnybroook Pharmacy and along with this is our passion in women’s health and all things menopause which drives us every day.
“Sharing my personal Perimenopause struggle has helped many women in my community. As a woman and a Pharmacist I am in a privileged position to help empower women by giving them the knowledge and tools to aid them on their own hormone journey.
“We use our social media platforms to reach as many women as possible, helping women gain strength from knowledge. Information is power, and reaching women through free, easily accessible social media platforms is a great way for me to help as many women as I can.
“I use my days off and also time in the pharmacy to spread the correct information to women and provide support to my local community. We try to recommend a holistic approach to health, encouraging not just medicine but health, fitness and nutrition for our patients.
We are blessed to be surrounded by a wonderful supportive community.
Seeing the positive effect myself and my team have on our patients’ lives is the driving force for our continued enthusiasm for what we do.
