Ann-Marie received her Masters at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland and completed her pre-registration training in Bournemouth, England with Boots Pharmacy practicing community pharmacy. She went on to become a member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. Ann-Marie returned to Barbados in 2008 and joined The Sparman Clinic team in managing DASAE Pharmacy in February of 2009.
“At DASAE Pharmacy I am part of a healthcare team involved in monitoring medication usage, counseling and preparing prescriptions for patients, providing drug information and advice to other health professionals in the clinic and the community. I very much enjoy being part of this dynamic team and giving healthcare advice and support to my patients.
Community pharmacy for me is so much more than filling prescriptions and giving advice on medication usage, indications and potential side effects. I love to empower and encourage my patients by educating them on ways to make better diet and lifestyle choices, thus improving their quality of life in the long run. It is very rewarding to see my patients improving and attaining their healthcare goals and even reduce their medication. “
