Finlandia Pharmacist, Jason Wilhelm, is passionate about health and the best ways to achieve well-being. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, he graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy. During his 13 years as a drugstore pharmacist, he came to realize that truly helping people regain their health embraced more than the standard pharmacy model could provide.
With an interest in functional medicine, as well as respect for all forms of natural healing, Jason is now able to follow his passion for compounding—with comprehensive training in standard and sterile compounding under his belt. He maintains expert knowledge of hormonal therapies for men and women.
In addition to helping others in their quest for wellness, Jason enjoys being healthy and fit himself, and grew up playing “every sport that was available.” He currently keeps active with Crossfit, slow pitch and by running after his beloved dog, Dexter.
Most importantly, Jason enjoys interacting with Finlandia’s pharmacy customers and making sure they have all the information needed to benefit from their medications. He loves being asked questions concerning medications and health, so ask away…

Pharmacist Yuki Takemura knew she wanted to help people from an early age. In high school, she discovered her passion while volunteering at a nursing home where she developed meaningful and caring relationships. Becoming a pharmacist became an excellent fit.
After moving to Canada, Yuki started working at Finlandia as a pharmacist assistant. In 2016, she became a Canadian licensed pharmacist! She is grateful for the naturaopathic and holistic experience she has received by being a part of the Finlandia team for the past 10 years. She particularly enjoys the opportunity to experience many different kinds of compounding (i.e. standard, bio-identical hormone replacement, sterile, etc.).
Naturopathic and holistic approaches to health and wellbeing have always been central to Yuki’s values, beliefs and life path. She is thrilled to work in a pharmacy, which promotes a comprehensive vision of health. When Yuki has hung up her lab coat for the day, she also enjoys going on hikes, camping, and playing tennis.
Pharmacist Anissa Penneway graduated in 2009 from the UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences program.

She has always maintained an interest in comprehensive health and well-being. Her position at Finlandia allows her to combine a holistic approach with conventional pharmacy practice. She enjoys learning about all of the products that only Finlandia carries, as well as the variety of compounding techniques done in the pharmacy lab.

When she is not behind the counter, you will find her exploring nature with her family.
