Mike Cavanagh

Pharmacist / Owner

After earning his pharmacist degree at University of Toronto, Mike returned home to the Kawartha Lakes region to begin his career as a Pharmacist.  After gaining a few key years of experience, he opened Kawartha Lakes Pharmacy in 2009.  Mike's friendly demeanor quickly makes you feel welcome and at ease. He enjoys working in the community, knowing he is providing quality healthcare to each person as an individual.  

You may bump into him on off days at the golf course or some may know him through his service on the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes board; either way he always enjoys being part of the City of Kawartha Lakes community.

Brad Chmarney

Brad brings over 18 years experience as a pharmacist to the team. He is a committed owner, truly wanting to serve the community. His specialty in compounding is a true passion of his. It provides more individual service, making your life better,  which is his equal passion.  Originally from Saskatchewan, he has made the Peterborough area his home. And enjoys his active family life.

Mark Tarver


Mark joined us in 2014, bringing new talent to the Kawartha Lakes Pharamacy team.  After finishing his degree at Univeristy of Toronto, Mark made the move to Lindsay, Ontario to enjoy the beautiful Kawartha Lakes Region. Along with bringing his pharmaceutical talent he has also brought his rugby talent. Next time you are at the pitch keep your eyes open for him.  

Heather Scott

Pharmacy Assistant

Heather is a familiar face to many at Kawartha Lakes Pharmacy, having worked here since it's doors opened in 2009.  Her loyalty to the team quickly stands out and spills over into her interaction with customers as she genuinely loves to serve all that come through the doors of the Pharmacy.  Having trained at Humber College and absorbing quickly from those around her, Heather has made herself an integral part of the team.  

Though she stays busy behind the pharmacy counter, she also owns a yarn shop - teaching others in the community and serves on the food bank board.

Christine Petronijevic

Pharmacy Assistant

Christine joined the Kawartha Lakes Pharmacy team in 2012 and has been a critical team member ever since. Her energy and smile are contagious.  It is obvious that she loves what she does as she works with the team and customers. She helps to create the team unity amongst the staff, enjoying working with them very much.  She seeks to experience life whether on the back of her horse or her harley.  Family and farm are very much what keep Christine busy outside of work.

Kim Watson

Pharmacy Technician

After a long career in the customer service world, Kim joined us in 2012.  Trained at Humber and certified at Lambton College she has quickly become part of the family here at Kawartha Lakes Pharmacy.  Her warm nature makes you feel confident right away, and you know immediately that she is looking out for your healthcare needs.

Kim's days of work do not end when she leaves the store; having a busy family that is actively involved in several sports.  You may see her out cheering on the local Central Ontario Wolves Minor Atom team.

Michelle Donnelly

Pharmacy Assistant Student

Michelle has come home to Lindsay, Ontario to spend her second summer with the team at Kawartha Lakes Pharmacy as a pharmacy assistant. We are excited that she is back, as we enjoy her helping hand during the busy summer months. We are also thrilled that she will be starting to train to be a Pharmacist at University of Toronto in the fall. If you do not see her smiling face in the store than that likely means she is away at the cottage, enjoying swimming at the lake.
