Linda Keane Founder of Nourish Health

LINDA KEANE

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.

MELINDA

Pharmacist | Naturopath

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. She has found her home here in Dunsborough with her two beautiful children and husband. Mel believes in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing is a great addition to our team.

JODY

Clinical Nutritionist 

Jody has been working at Nourish Health since 2019 as a Clinical Nutritionist. She has long had an interest in natural health, starting out in Aromatherapy and practising as a Remedial Massage Therapist. She believes once you start on the path of natural therapies, you never stop!

Jody has practiced in Byron Bay, and worked as a TAFE lecturer before settling in Dunsborough. As a Nutritionist, Jody loves to help people unravel the confusion around how to eat healthy, improve wellbeing and enjoy life! She has a particular interest in preconception care, and working with children and their parents to improve their eating habits, as many parents find this challenging.

When Jody isn’t at work, she loves to take time out at one of the many beautiful beaches in the South West, depending on which way the wind in blowing of course.

EVE

Nutritionist

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.
