In 2016 I became the Practice Manager. The thing I love most about working at Heron Eyecare is the diverse range of complicated eye conditions we see come through the door.

Outside Heron I love to travel, play sport and spend time with my family & friends.

Joined Heron Eyecare in 2016

I enjoy dispensing to our wonderful patients. Glasses are an important accessory requiring the correct fit, as well as comfort and style, which is equalling as important. I'm passionate about providing our patients with the correct eyewear solution because choosing the right frame can be overwhelming.

I'm looking forward to commencing my qualifications as an Optical Dispenser in the new year.    

Outside of Heron Eyecare, I enjoy watching my two boys race Motocross. I'm also an active committee member of the Toowoomba Motocross Club.

Joined Heron Eyecare in 2019

Since commencing my career in optics in 2008, I have become a qualified Optical Dispenser and have had the opportunity to work in multiple practises in QLD and NSW. I joined the Heron Eyecare team in February 2019, a move that drives my interest in healthcare, and allows me to work with world class equipment.

Away from work you will usually find me keeping busy with family and friends, spending time outdoors or visiting the beach.

Joined Heron Eyecare in 2019

I started working at Heron Eyecare in August 2019. I had previously worked in law, however, sought a change upon returning to the workforce after having my little boy. I have really enjoyed the family orientated atmosphere that the practice brings.

In my spare time you will find me spending it with my young family, friends, at the beach or fishing.
