The thing I love about pharmacy is the contact with our clients, many who are friends. We all have our oath in life and the diversity in experience continues to interest and amaze me. In 2019 with the help and motivation of some of our clients I managed to fulfil the lifelong dream to walk the Kokoda Track. The experience was truly amazing and profoundly humbling.
I love being a pharmacist. Passing on essential information, tailored and appropriate, for each client is both challenging and rewarding.
My areas of interest include – Asthma & Airways conditions (3 asthmatic children); Cardiac including High Blood pressure (I have high BP); Autoimmune conditions (In our family we have Chrons, R.A., Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Lupus, etc); Diabetes (1.3 Million Australians know they have it and they estimate another 1.3 Million don’t know that they have it.); Fibromyalgia (A very misunderstood condition that I have); Children’s medications (Again with 3 children I understand the pressures that parents can be under).
I love a happy work environment, I like to laugh, I find laughter lifts the spirits.
I have been working as a pharmacist for over thirty years. I enjoy being able to help people with their health enquiries. Dispensing prescriptions, explaining medications and offering advice are all very rewarding aspects of being a pharmacist.
One of my special areas of interest is asthma management. The high incidence of asthma on the Central Coast means there is a need for increased awareness of how to identify and manage the symptoms of asthma. Correctly treated asthma can lead to a greatly improved quality of life.
At ChemistCare we all take pride in our personal service, our caring and our professional advice. Our pharmacy is located in the GP Superclinic and it is a pleasure to work in such a supportive network.
I take great pride in my role as the Retail Pharmacy manager at Warnervale ChemistCare.
I started working in pharmacy when I was a school, working weekends and evenings, along the way I have been involved in a lot of areas in Pharmacy.
I find it a very happy and warming environment!
One area I am extremely passionate about is the Natural Health area. I am a firm believer in taking a active role in maintaining your own health. I am always trying to expand my knowledge and read about the latest findings. I love to build a connection with all our customers, getting to know them and helping them find solutions to any health need.
Being in the management team with John and rosemary, I work hard in teaching our other Pharmacy Assistants the skills to excel in their job and perform at their best.
One of my favourite Pharmacy products is Herbs of Gold Magnesium, I would not know what to do without this gem! It keeps me relaxed and eases my aches and pains from working out in the gym.
When I am not working, you will find me at the gym, enjoying the sun at the beach with my husband and 2 sons.
Hi my name is Fiona, I work in the dispensary with John and Rosemary as a dispense technician.
I have been with this amazing team for 4 years now but have been working in pharmacy for 20 years, 15 of those years was in hospital pharmacy.
My job here as senior dispense technician is to dispense all of your scripts alongside the pharmacist, maintain appropriate stock levels in the dispensary and assist the pharmacist wherever possible, to allow them to spend as much time with the customers.
My spare time away from work is usually spent running around after my young son.
I started working in pharmacy 7 years ago when I was in high school doing weekend and night shifts. I enjoyed the challenging and rewarding atmosphere of working in pharmacy so much I moved to a full-time position, as a pharmacy shop assistant, helping our customers with their everyday health needs and concerns.
I love working in an environment where I can learn at the same time and use my knowledge to assist customers in every way I can. As well as serving customers, I do a lot of the displays and signage for the pharmacy, to give more information on our products and our store.
Woking in Pharmacy has made me take great care of my own health as we are exposed to many illnesses. The product I have found helps me the most is the Oriental Botanicals Astragalus 8, which helps boost my immune system.
When I am not working you will find me at the farm at home working with my horses or hanging out with my partner and friends. I look forward to seeing you around in the pharmacy!
Hi! My name is Gabbi, and I have been working for Warnervale ChemistCare since 2016. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Business and Psychological Science at the university of Newcastle.
I first started working here when I was in high school and quickly came to love the friendly environment out team creates- both behind and in the front of the counter. I am very passionate about customer-centred care and am a firm believer that kindness reciprocates-so you will often see me with a cheesy grin on my face!
I have maintained an active role in our customer delivery service since graduating high school two years ago and have enjoyed being able to visit and provide assistance to all our customers. I take pride in recreating our friendly pharmacy atmosphere beyond the walls of our store. If you see me out and about in our green van – give me a wave!
I have learnt many new things throughout my time here and am always excited to expand my knowledge of new, innovative products. Growing up with severe eczema and asthma, I am particularly interested in skin care and asthma management. My favourite product in the store is our Qv Gentle Wash and our MooGoo Eczema and Psoriasis Cream. I find both products keep my skin rich in moisture all day long.
When I am not at work, you might find me playing netball, hanging out with my family and friends, or studying (I am a bit of a bookworm). I look forward to seeing you in our pharmacy!
I started working in pharmacy 4 years ago, when I was 15 and studying at school. I worked after school and on weekends. This experience helped me develop my understanding and skills I have today in my role in pharmacy.
My role at Warnervale ChemistCare is to pack the Webster Packs, which helps many of our customers live independently and manage their own medications, with our assistance of packing. I have recently been promoted to full time Webster Packing Manager. I also assist in dispensary as a dispense technician and I help with customer service on the shop floor.
My favourite product would personally be Rescue Remedy as it is a great herbal medication which helps reduce stress, anxiety and helps promote a well-balanced sleep. I found this product beneficial throughout my HSC, which I completed in 2019. It helped me overcome stress and anxiety whilst undergoing exam pressure.
In my free time, I spend time with my family, my partner, and my friends: chilling out, watching movies, going on picnics, going to the beach, and camping.
I have been working as a pharmacy assistant for the past few years. I assist customers from their everyday health needs to things like hiring equipment and assisting with their diabetes requirements.
I mainly work afternoons and some weekends as I am currently studying in year 12. Next year I am hoping to be studying nursing to further fulfil my work knowledge and joy in helping people with their health needs.
When I am not at school or here at the pharmacy, you would find me at the gym, playing netball or spending time with friends and family. My favourite product is hydralyte, as it keeps me feeling hydrated during a game of netball and is my go-to product when feeling a bit flat.
I started working in the pharmacy over a year ago, as a pharmacy assistant and I absolutely love it! The environment is friendly and so welcoming, you are guaranteed to feel right at home.
I have recently been training in the dispensary and assist John and Rosemary in the afternoons when I work. I am currently in year 11 and hope to go into the medical industry after school, as I have a passion for helping people.
My favourite product is the Herbs of Gold Clear Skin tablets, as they have really helped me with my skin. In my spare time I am either at the gym or out with friends and family.
I am a pharmacy assistant and work in the afternoons after school. As a pharmacy assistant I help customers in the front of the shop and other places where I can. I make sure the pharmacy is clean, tidy, and fully stocked, ready for the next day.
I am currently in year 10; I have been working in the pharmacy for about a year and have already learnt many new things. I enjoy learning all about the numerous products in our pharmacy. My favourite product would be the Immune Defence by Ethical Nutrients as it keeps me feeling healthy.
In the future I hope to complete my HSC and continue into the medical industry, helping others with their health. I spend my free time with friends and family, usually shopping, going to the beach and going on adventures.
Hi, my name is Sandra. I joined Chemistcare as a pharmacy assistant in 2015. While I was in high school when I first started here, I am currently studying for my undergraduate degree at university. Within our team, I help customers with getting their scripts filled and selecting products from the shop.
A product from our store that I really like is the Jojoba Company’s Skin Balancing Oil. It’s main ingredient, Jojoba, is a natural wax ester that is very compatible with our skin and has a wide variety of benefits. Because the Balancing Oil is very lightweight, I like to add a drop into my moisturiser and apply both products together.
Outside of work, I love to read and am always looking for new and interesting books. Learning a new language also interests me and is something that I aspire to achieve in the future.
I work part time as the delivery driver and also assist in the shop with all Pharmacy aspects.
I am able to get out and see our Clients in the community that are unable to visit us instore, delivering their Pharmacy goods and medicines.

To keep a healthy mind and body and set a good example for my children, I regularly spend time in the gym. I find this puts me in a great head space and gives me the energy I need to run around for my family.
