Pallavi Ramhit

MedActiv Phoenix
Having always being inspired by the field of healthcare, I graduated from the University of Mauritius with a First-class Honours Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy (BPharm) in 2015. With a major interest in medicine, I carried out a project on the biological effects of some selected Mauritian endemic plants in at the University of Mauritius and today I am among the writers of an article titled ‘Multi-targeted effects of untapped resources from the Mauritian endemic flora’, published in the South African Journal of Botany. I am also a member of the Pharmacy Association of Mauritius (PAM). As a result of my exposure to different pharmacy settings including Victoria Hospital, A.G Jeetoo hospital, Fortis Clinique Darne and Ajanta Pharma (Mauritius) Limited, I have acquired greater knowledge, skills and experience in the pharmacy profession. Being passionate, optimistic and motivated, I joined MedActiv as pharmacist in June 2017. With full dedication towards my work, my team and the customers, I am currently the pharmacist in charge of MedActiv Galien. Having the IBL values engrossed in my heart I strive for excellence in serving our customers to their full satisfaction.

I am Rajeev Soborun, pharmacist of MedActiv Trianon. I completed my Bachelor in Pharmacy (B. Pharm.) from Manipal University, India and accomplished my pre-registration training at Ajanta Pharma, Kentish Pharmacy and SSRN Hospital, Pamplemousses. In 2009, I registered with the pharmacy board of Mauritius, following which I started working at Pharmacie de Coromandel.

In order to upgrade my skills, in 2016, I received my MBA from the University of Mauritius and since Nov 2017, I am holding the best interest of the customers of MedActiv Trianon close to my heart. Throughout my career I have been actively involved in counselling pharmacy practice so as to optimise drug therapy in each patient. In order to excel in my job as pharmacist, I believe it is imperative for me and my team to listen empathetically to our customers so that we can provide them with exceptional customer service and advice for the improvement of their health. I believe in creating a relationship with our customers based on trust resulting in a long lasting bond.

Robin Durga

MedActiv La Chaussée
I graduated from Manipal University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Pharmacy with distinction in Pharmacology. After completing my degree, I worked as pharmacist for 8 years in the public health sector and was based in a community pharmacy. My professional experience also includes delivering lectures at university level. Early in my career, I realized the importance of good management for smooth running of the business, enthused team, a pleasant workplace culture and staying tuned to customer’s demands. Since then I pursued a post-graduate diploma in management studies and now hold a Master in Business Administration with distinction from the University of Sunderland. Today, I still run into former customers who recognise me from places where I worked across the island. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with different people and the best challenge is to satisfy all clients and improve their lifestyle through health tips. In my free time, I enjoy keeping abreast with latest product-market trends, savoring fine dishes, hiking and sight-seeing.

Varsha Sunneechurra-Jankee

MedActiv Rose Belle
After gaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy and an MBA, I started my career at IBL in 2010 after my internship at J.Nehru Hospital. I started at MedActiv Rose-Belle then moved to Phoenix, Ebene and Chaussée. My journey in the company has been very enriching and inspiring, helping me develop both professionally and personally. My independence and confidence has helped me to overcome all varieties of challenges that have come my way. I am married, a mother to an adorable daughter and I am a passionate lover of nature. I love mountain hiking as well as baking. Being friendly and jovial by nature has helped me to make lots of friends within the company. I also ensure that I always maintain a cordial and respectful relationship with my staff members at work. However, being a perfectionist, I also keep an eagle eye on the day to day business so as to prevent any kind of infringement which may affect the company’s image. I would willingly step in anytime for counselling of patients at the pharmacy, assuring customer satisfaction without forgetting that golden human touch. “Customers loves certainty, make sure you give it to them”.
