Bachelor of Pharmacy

I studied the Bachelor of Pharmacy and Masters of Business Administration at the University of Tasmania, and I am now working as the Director of State-wide Medication and Strategy Reform.

My studies at the University of Tasmania were invaluable towards my career as I gained the necessary qualifications needed to apply and be successful in obtaining my Directorship.

If I had to pick a highlight of my career so far, it would definitely be implementing governmental state-wide policies within the Health Department. Additionally, I have also had the opportunity to hire several graduates from the University of Tasmania which is very satisfying to give back to my tertiary institution.

My advice to students considering or already in the field of pharmacy is that the profession is so much more than just working in a community or hospital pharmacy. Explore your options; you may be surprised at how diverse and expansive the field of pharmacy is.

The word "health" to me means people able to live happy and productive lives.
