I’m a Kiwi who moved to Aus in 2010 and now I live in Bargara in sunny Queensland, with my wife and three (young) children.
I was always interested in Chemistry growing up, I like people too, so pharmacy seemed a natural fit for my career. It’s also very satisfying to own your own business.
I became a pharmacist in New Zealand, in 2004 and worked in Ireland for 4 years before moving to Australia.
Having honed my management skills as a group manager for Pharmacy Alliance, I’m now a partner in a number of member pharmacies in Queensland and the working partner at Pharmacy Central Bargara.
Our pharmacies are all part of the partner program so, knowing the ‘backend’, non- clinical side of running a pharmacy is looked after, allows me to spend time on the most important aspect of my business, the customers. It lets me achieve more and operate more effectively as a pharmacist.
With Pharmacy Alliance, I’m miles ahead of where I could be on my own.
Pharmacy Alliance has also introduced me to people who I can truly view as friends, people I can call to discuss ideas, ask for help or just have a chat. Great friendships make doing business easier.
