Gatton Star - - LIFE COMMUNITY -

Name: Eloise Cullen

Oc­cu­pa­tion: Phar­ma­cist

Age: 26

Mar­i­tal Sta­tus: Sin­gle – in­ter­ested par­ties please ap­ply.

What do you en­joy most about your job? En­gag­ing and help­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, many of whom have known me since I was a baby.

Why did you de­cide to buy the phar­macy? I have al­ways dreamt of own­ing a phar­macy and when the op­por­tu­nity arose in 2016, I didn’t want to pass it up.

What is the best ad­vice you have ever re­ceived? Life is all about choices – my mum’s favourite say­ing.

Have you met any­one fa­mous, who and when? Craig Lown­des at the For­mula 1 in 2002.

What is your great­est ac­com­plish­ment in life? It would be grad­u­at­ing uni­ver­sity with a Mas­ter of Phar­macy and then buy­ing a phar­macy with my dad.

What is the one thing you would like to change in the world? I would make ac­cess to med­i­ca­tion uni­ver­sal so all peo­ple would be able to use the best medicine avail­able.

What is your favourite hobby or re­cre­ation, and why? I love to do puz­zles. They keep my mind sharp as well as dis­tract me from all the day’s crazi­ness. Thanks Newsx­press Gat­ton.

What is your hap­pi­est child­hood mem­ory? Fam­ily hol­i­days at the Sun­shine Coast. Lots of swim­ming, puz­zles and shop­ping.

What is your favourite place to visit in the district? Val­ley Bake and Cof­fee – Kym makes the best toasted cheese and Vegemite sand­wich.

What would you do if you won the Lotto? Pay off my debt and go on a hol­i­day around Europe.

Who are the peo­ple you most ad­mire – dead or liv­ing? My par­ents – they raised quite the hand­ful – me.
