Pharmacist/Founder of Nourish Health
Linda made the move down south with her young family in the year 2000, trying to escape the Y2K bug with a sea change. She has owned pharmacies in North Beach, Rockingham and Mandurah but took a break to concentrate bringing up her family in the best place to live, never once regretting the decision to leave the city.
Ten years after purchasing and working at Dunsborough Pharmacy, Linda opened Nourish, a pharmacy that more closely aligned to her belief of what a pharmacy should be and took the risk of making her dream real. She believes that ‘medication is not the only answer’ and that you can always do something more to improve your health and quality of life. She believes we should live a life of continuous learning and hopes that Nourish will provide trained and knowledgable professionals to help guide and advise you on your own personal health care journey. Linda believes that many complementary, alternative and lifestyle therapies can work alongside conventional therapies to make and keep us all well.
Linda has always had an interest in health and fitness, but over the last five years has ventured into the sport of triathlon with its three disciplines of swim, cycle and run. She is now a regular jetty swimmer and Ironman 70.3 competitor. Linda feels lucky that she has been able to surround herself with athletes who are very committed to their health, nutrition and wellbeing. They even motivated her to complete her first marathon in Paris in 2016.
Sheni grew up in Malawi, often referred as the “Warm Heart of Africa” in southeastern Africa. She decided to complete her university studies in Perth, and has now lived here for 9 years and studied her Masters in Pharmacy at Curtin University.
Sheni was an intern at Dunsborough Pharmacy before graduating in 2021 and becoming the full time Pharmacist at Nourish Health. Currently, Sheni is undertaking further specialty in compounding training (where the magic happens), with one of the leading compounding laboratories Medisca in Sydney. She has also developed a special interest in Medicinal Cannabis and the benefits it can have on our health.
Sheni loves working at Nourish because of the comprehensive and integrated holistic approach towards medicine, and particularly loves learning more about natural supplements and ways food can impact health.
When Sheni isn’t at work, she loves to get out in nature and explore Dunsborough’s beautiful landscape and hanging out with friends. She is also an expert napper you will always find her soaking up the sunshine when it’s out.

Melinda is our part time Pharmacist and Naturopath. On completion of her Naturopathy Degree at Southern Cross University, Mel spent 5 years practising around Byron Bay, she then decided it was time to come home to her family on the West Coast.
Her passion for making a positive difference to people’s health led her to studying Masters of Pharmacy at the University of Western Australia. She has been working in community pharmacy in the South West for the past 7 years.
Melinda’s other passion is surfing. She has travelled the world chasing the waves and when she’s not working she is getting salty somewhere.

Eve has been working at Nourish as a pharmacy assistant since 2018 while studying Nutrition and Health Promotion at University. At the end of 2020 she graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion.
Eve has always had a interest in nutrition and learning how our food choices can influence health outcomes. She is particularly interested in the link between diet & mental health, creating healthy eating habits, and debunking the multitude of myths that exist in the field of nutrition! As a Nutritionist, Eve would describe herself as compassionate and understanding of other people’s situations.
Eve’s professional goal is to use both her majors (nutrition and health promotion) to educate the general population to understand healthy eating habits to make simple changes to enhance their health, and promote a healthy lifestyle.
Working in pharmacy as a Nutritionist requires a careful balance and blend of natural medicine with modern medicine. Eve believes there is definitely a place for pharmaceuticals with natural health, and often pharmacy and nutrition can go hand in hand very well.
To stay healthy both physically and mentally, Eve likes practices yoga and meditation regularly, and a daily walk in nature is a must for her wellbeing.
