Pharmacist & Co Founder
Glenn has recently stepped back from the front line of Community Pharmacy over the past 40 years after a long and successful career. While he was looking forward to many a relaxing Gin and Tonic at his fantastic beach house, Glenn has picked up the challenge and is swapping his tonic for Tonik – for the most part!
Glenn Registered as a Pharmacist in New Zealand after graduating in 1977 following the mandatory four years of study. He has worked as Pharmacist in New Zealand, Fiji, United Kingdom and Australia for over 40 years and for 35 of those years has owned and operated Community Pharmacies.
A Natural approach to health outcomes alongside more traditional Pharmaceuticals and medications has always been a passion and Glenn has studied various disciplines along the way including Classical Homeopathy and Clinical Nutrition. He has a philosophy that a complementary approach can often lead to better results, preferring a pro-active ethos, rather than a re-active one. There are times when traditional medication may be very necessary to treat or control a health condition, but more often, a natural approach can lessen potential side effects, or in some cases lead to a gradual reduction in the need for prescription medication.
As a young and relatively fit 62 year old, Glenn is really enjoying working with Tonik founder and daughter Pip. He lives a balanced life between travel, fishing, diving and mountain biking, while keeping his mind active with a business passion.
Also referred to as "Poppa Nut" Glenn has his work cut out for him at Tonik HQ developing new formulas while ensuring the natural benefits of each ingredient is retained in its most organic and pure form.
