Tobie Nortjé

Owner & Pharmacist

ABOUT TOBIE

I am the proud owner of Parow Family Pharmacy but if you’ve visited our Pharmacy, you may also recognise me as the friendliest Pharmacist in the country! 

I always challenge myself to be the very best pharmacist I can be - that’s why I travel regularly to attend pharmaceutical congresses and I’m constantly learning about what’s new and what’s best for you and your family’s health.  I believe that the consumer has a right to personal, professional healthcare and that being a pharmacist is a lot more than simply making money.  

The patient always comes first – before anything else!  This is, and will continue to be my motto.

Jenine Koen

HR & Marketing Manager

ABOUT JENINE

I am privileged to work at one of the best pharmacies in the country since November 2015 - and I love coming to work every day!  I am responsible for the company’s social media and other marketing as well as the Human Resources. 

I used to own my own business before leaving South Africa to travel/work in London for a year.  Back in South Africa, I got the wonderful opportunity to work at Parow Family Pharmacy – a decision I will never regret!

If you are looking for me on weekends, you will most probably find me in the kitchen as I love to cook and bake.  I am the mother of 3 wonderful children and love spending time with them, travelling and being outdoors.

Hettie Germishuys

Pharmacist

ABOUT HETTIE

I grew up in the Swartland and then traded the beautiful Cape Town for Potchefstroom  (“Pukke bo!”) where I obtained my Pharmacist degree after 4 years.

When not at work, you’ll probably find me in the kithchen busy baking. Excercise is also very important to me and I enjoy going for a long run!

People are my passion and it is also one of the main reasons I chose to become a pharmacist.
