Front Store Manager

I have returned to Pharmasave with 27 years of retail experience in the pharmacy sector. I grew up in Terrace and relocated to the Lower Mainland to start a career in pharmacy. My husband and I moved to Castlegar in 2009 and have never looked back. I have worked in many different roles including pharmacy assistant, cosmetician, head cashier, supervisor, and management. For my downtime I love spending time with my family - my husband, our 23 year old son, and our 7 year old son and of course I can't for get about our 12 year old cat. I also enjoy baking, hiking, swimming, gardening, and more recently, painting.
