Meet the journalists who work on Pharmacy Today
Jonathan Chilton Towle
Jonathan has been with Pharmacy Today since the start of 2016 and is now the acting editor. Originally from Wellington, he has worked in journalism all over New Zealand. He started out chasing ambulances and reporting on pie thefts in Oamaru. He then moved to The Star community newspaper in Dunedin where his hard-hitting journalism included a compelling account of the time Dave from CityCare freed a sparrow trapped under a manhole. Since moving to Pharmacy Today, Jonathan has learned a lot about the pharmacy sector and reported on everything from the CPSA to illegal sales. He has a BA in history from Victoria University of Wellington.
Nerine, who hails from Johannesburg, South Africa, has been living in Auckland with her husband and two children for the past two and a half years. Her international experience includes many journalist and editor roles for a variety of hardcopy and website publications. Most notable is her founding of Commercial & Industrial Property News in Johannesburg and editing it for more than a decade, for which she won South African Property Owners Association awards for editorial integrity. Nerine's educational background includes an Honours in English from the University of the Witwatersrand followed by a Higher Education Diploma from the University of South Africa.
Fresh from a couple of years traveling through Latin America, millennial Georgia embarked on her journalism career by talking her way into a reporter role at Pharmacy Today. Her previous experience included one travel article published by Stuff, which she touted proudly. After initially covering the cat stories and fungal nails, Georgia now tackles bigger issues. Her obsession with Latin America hasn't waned, and she has taken to selling Mexican food at the markets, where she can be found when she's not writing stories.
