About Melanie


Melanie has lived in Port Perry her entire life and is proud to call Scugog her home. She started working with Doug on the retail side of things in 1995 at customer service, and quickly showed talent and expertise in dealing with people. She became a retail manager and held that position for several years before making the jump to the dispensary staff as a Pharmacy Assistant. It was in the pharmacy that she discovered her calling. Her patience & empathy with clients and her attention to detail allowed to her excel in her new position and she quickly established herself as a key member of the pharmacy team. Melanie is so happy to be joining Doug, Bonnie and the rest of the Pharmacy Associates team in providing the best possible care to patients as well as assisting in establishing our pharmacy as the obvious choice for the Scugog community.
