A Donnybrook local's contribution to community healthcare has been formally recognised this month.

Donnybrook Amcal Pharmacy assistant Sharni Mifflin has been officially recognised as the Western Australian Pharmacy Assistant of the Year.

Ms Mifflin was formally recognised at the Amcal Pharmacy Assistance Annual Conference, held earlier this month.

The win recognises Ms Mifflin's passion and talent for providing reliable services to the customers who patronise the local pharmacy.

Ms Mifflin said she was passionate about her job.

"To be recognised for doing something that I love makes me so happy, especially when there were so many other deserving and talented candidates in the category," she said.

"I feel very honoured to have won this award because I love my job.

"My favourite part of my job is being able to help customers."

She will now represent Western Australia in the Pharmacy Assistant of the Year awards, which are due to be held later this year.

Amcal Pharmacy is based at 78 South Western Highway in Donnybrook.
