About Greenlife - In-store advisors
JAMIE SERMON Dip ION - Nutritionist
As the partner of one of Greenlife's founders (Mike), Jamie Sermon has been involved with Greenlife since its inception in 1990.
Having a longstanding interest in nutrition since finding a natural remedy for her son's "incurable" eczema, and realising that she needed more knowledge to be able to advise customers successfully, Jamie trained at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition where she graduated in 1999.
Jamie has also attended countless excellent seminars, lectures and talks generously provided by the various companies whose supplements and remedies are available at Greenlife.
Jamie has found all of her training immensely useful in her day to day interaction with customers and over the years has had the satisfaction of knowing that her advice has, in many instances, produced very positive results.

PETER TOYNE (Cert Social Sciences) - Supplements Advisor
I have 15 years experience working in the Health & Natural products Industry. My interest grew after my partner & I ran our own organic gardening service, introducing me to the wonders and healing properties of the plant world. Lifelong friends, Mike & Jamie Sermon offered me my first position at Greenlife back in 1995. This quickly developed into a passion for all forms of complimentary medicine. Eventually, I was elevated to shop manager, a position I held for 6 years before my departure in 2003. I left to pursue a career in the field of Nutritional Sales & Training for a series VMS companies, including: Nature’s Plus, New Chapter & most recently, Viridian Nutrition.
I continue to develop my interest in holistic healthcare & the application of safe natural remedies, alongside studying for my degree in Social Sciences with Environment/International Studies.
