I grew up in Sydney with plenty of family, friends and a great Church community. Having experienced double vision for a while without realising that this wasn’t “normal”, I underwent vision therapy at the age of 8 for an eye turn. The orthoptist who treated me at the time gave me my passion for helping children with vision difficulties, which brought me to where I am today.
I completed my Bachelor of Optometry/Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours and the University Medal at UNSW in 2011. After graduating, I worked at a Behavioural Optometrist in Sydney, all of 5 minutes from where I grew up! After completing the Masters Course at UNSW in Behavioural Optometry in 2014, I went on to be awarded a fellowship with the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists in 2017.
After 7 years working in Sydney, I decided it was time for a change, and moved up to the Sunshine Coast to join Caloundra Vision Optometrists. Here I continue to enjoy my passion for helping people with their vision, but also have more time for the things I love – travelling, yoga, beach-side living, a good book and warmer climates. I am especially glad to now be living closer to my brother, his wife and their family – 4 gorgeous nieces I adore!
I have taken my passion for yoga a step further and completed my Level 1 Yoga teacher training in June 2023 with Yoga NRG. Come find me at a class and say Namaste!
