I enjoy the sciences and working with people, so when I became a pharmacist – over 25 years ago now – it was the perfect choice. 

My role gives me the opportunity every day to help people understand why they are taking their medication and how to take it to get the best results.

I chose pharmacy as a career because it allows me to connect with patients, help bridge existing gaps in patient care, make a difference in the lives of patients and continue to learn. With more than 14 years of pharmacy experience, five of those years in pharmacy management, I’ve also worked with the Faculty of Pharmacy at UBC and the College of Pharmacists as a member of the Inquiry Committee.

The Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy is the pharmacy of the future: transforming the Canadian pharmacy landscape and the way patients make decisions about their medications. In addition to the day-to-day activity of running a busy pharmacy, I am excited about the opportunity to streamline and continually improve our patient-first services.

I’ve been in practice now for over 25 years, and each day brings unique, rewarding opportunities to improve the health of an individual in my community. I have experience in both hospital and community pharmacy, and I have also represented my profession on various professional boards and committees. The Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy model is unique within our healthcare system and it allows me to focus on what matters most to me – delivering healthcare solutions to our patients.
