I was born and raised in Brisbane, Queensland. I was inspired to study optometry by my uncle who practised in Townsville. He told me “Have a job that involves talking to people – people’s stories are always interesting”. I studied optometry at Queensland University of Technology and then moved to Tasmania for my first job. A beautiful state but a little cold for a Queenslander! I later moved to Melbourne which I also loved but was a little too big and busy. I moved to Adelaide in 1999 and haven’t looked back. I love my job because I find eyes fascinating and I enjoy problem solving. And my uncle was right – peoples stories are interesting. Outside of work I enjoy jogging and I am also trying to learn to surf… trying being the operative word!!

I completed my Optometry degree in 1998 and moved from Brisbane back to my home town of Adelaide. After receiving a scholarship from OPSM whilst studying, I worked for them at various locations for seven years. Duncan Barnett then offered me a job I couldn’t refuse and so began my time at Bridge Eye Care. Two children later and after some time spent working in Adelaide, I am now proud to return to Bridge Eye Care as a co-owner and consulting Optometrist three days a week.  When not at work, I enjoy keeping fit and spending time with my family and friends. ‘Meeting truly interesting people and facing challenges, both in business and related to people’s eyes, is what I look forward to every day’

Practice Manager

I have lived in the Murray Bridge area for almost long enough to be called a local. My children were born here and we all love the life that goes with living in a rural town. Anyone who knows me is either a patient or a netball competitor because, apart from my kids, these are my two favourite things. I have met some of the friendliest people in the twelve years of working at Bridge Eye Care. I love my work and helping people to be able to see and look better, but you can’t beat the look on the face of a small child when they put on their glasses for the first time and see what they have been missing. And that’s why I go to work each day…
