Jessica is our energetic pharmacist who loves the sun, ocean and the big outdoors. She enjoys travelling, movement and exercise and also loves food, animals and a lot of other things! She is especially passionate about health and wellbeing and loves to help people improve their health and overall quality of life.
While completing her Pharmacy Degree at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, she signed up to be a Yoga and Pilates Instructor which helped her manage the stress of studying at the time and broadened her perspective on what it means to be “healthy” – being that it is more than just the absence of disease, illness or pain. She believes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to disease prevention and management. Over the years, Jessica has developed an interest for patient-specific approaches to healthcare which aligns harmoniously with the pharmacy’s model of individualised care for our patients.
