I'm motivated by the impact our business can have in the community.

Pharmacists play an important part in supporting our ageing population and dose administration aids are a cornerstone of this support. APHS' compliance sachets enable community pharmacies to offer safety and independence for tens of thousands of Australian self-medicating customers.

In 2011, I won the National Business Owner Award category at the Telstra Business Women's Awards. It was an honour, but what I'm most proud of is taking the intellectual property we developed and turning it into a licensed manufacturing business. This was a huge achievement, and the day we received  our first TGA licence was incredibly special.
