Hi my name is Ana

I am the manager of the Go Vita Smithfield store. I have been with the business coming up to 7 years now. My background is hospitality, so I have also worked in and around people. I love the social aspect my job allows me to have. Over the years I have developed my skills and knowledge with training and life experiences to allow me to better serve you.

I have a healthy outlook on life. I love being outdoors amongst nature. I live in a beach suburb so I’m spoilt to have the beach so close to me, I quite often go down after work take my shoes off bury my feet in the sand and listen to the waves.

I have seen a lot of changes through the industry and even just through the business. I have assisted the owner Dick with the opening of his 2 other stores. I feel truly blessed that he and his wife Beryl took a chance on me all those years ago. I look forward to seeing you in store and assisting you with your journey to a healthier way of living.

Our Owners

 

Dick & Beryl are born and bred Cairns locals who have been running their own business since 1987.

In 2001 they purchased Regeneration Health Food in Smithfield shopping centre and in 2004 joined the Go Vita group. In 2008 Dick was looking for another challenge so they purchased Body Wise at Stockland Earlville and converted it into a Go Vita store. Following on from that, it was in 2012 that an opportunity too good to refuse presented itself ~ Cairns required another health food store; this time in the city. So with their eldest daughter joining the family business, they opened Go Vita Cairns City opposite Cairns Central.

 

Beryl has spent almost all of her working life in pharmacy specialising in vitamins, which taught her a lot and prepared her for the health food industry, where she has been for the last 15years. Dick is a workaholic and loves the business side of things, also having been on the board of Go Vita Australia.

Together they live by the mantra : “Live well, learn plenty, laugh often, love much”
