Mike Cavanagh

Mike earned his pharmacist degree at University of Toronto. With his friendly demeanor, he 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 mike 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 community.

Mike Yake


Starting part-time in January 2015, Mike has quickly made himself a valuable memember of our team. Having worked at two prior pharmacies, he has decided to make Medicine Chest Pharmasave his home because of the warm, friendly staff and customers.  His fun personality is easily noted as he interacts with staff and customers alike.  This energy extends outside of work with a young family and beach volleyball in the summer months. When down time is needed Game of Thrones fills the spot. 

Erin Gauthier

Pharmacy Assistant / Compounding Technician

Erin brings seven years experience as a compounding technician to the Medicine Chest Pharmasave Pharmacy.  Having found her place on the team one and half years ago, she has become an integral member. You may see her smile at the counter but most often you will wave to Erin in the lab where she happily crushes, stirs and blends coupounded medicine prescribed specifically for you.

Erin is also the one team member that can happily share pet stories of her two dogs, three cats and five fish tanks.

Alicia Wilson

Front Store Manager

You may have seen Alicia around the Medicine Chest Pharmasave store since its opening (or close to it).  She has worked herself into her current role as the front store manager. Alicia is a welcome smiling face to the staff and customers; always willing to give you a hand.  Alicia's skills will only become more valuable as she continues her studies at college.  She often recharges her smile when out camping or playing baseball.

Jackie Barlow

Pharmacy Assistant

Jackie joined the Medicine Chest Pharmasave team in 2015, bringing seven years of experience as a pharmacy assistant with her. Her experience has been a true asset to the team.  Her athletic background means she knows how to be part of a team, as she quickly describes both staff and clients of Medicine Chest Pharmasave as fantastic.

Playing basketball or coaching rookie baseball is often where you find Jackie when not behind the counter; but even those take a backseat to time with her family.
