Kathy met Fiona after three Guild Community Work Skills (CWS) students conducted their vocational placement in Fiona’s pharmacies. As Kathy explains, “I have nominated Fiona as she was crucial to three of my Mackay CWS students having a positive and rewarding experience at their vocational placement pharmacies.”

One of these students, Jo-Jo Ruddall, shared her experiences with Fiona, “Fiona could not have made me feel more welcome from the very beginning. She was always full of encouragement, support and knowledge.”

Kathy added, “Fiona’s dedication to her team and customers was evident on walking into her stores. She is delightful and the love for her work shines through.”

As the April Boss of the month, Fiona will go into the draw to win the 2019 Boss of the Year award. The Boss of the Year will win either a Full Pharmacy Assistant National Conference 2020 Registration or a Full APP Registration (excluding Street Party) for 2020.
