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.
