Having been born and raised in Dubbo, I first became interested in Optometry back in 1999 when I completed my year 10 work experience with Morrison's Family Eyecare Centre. This lead to Saturday and holiday work and then into University, completing my Bachelor of Optometry with Honours in 2006.
Morrison's have supported me by providing me with a scholarship to attend the University of NSW to obtain my undergraduate degree. I am currently studying my Post Graduate Diploma in Ocular Therapeutics which I will complete mid 2010. This gives me the opportunity to expand my clinical knowledge and the ability to provide treatment for eye conditions; such as Glaucoma and Uveitis.
Living away in Sydney has really highlighted the advantages of working and living in a rural community. Morrison's have supported me all the way and now they have provided me with this wonderful opportunity of working back in my home town with family and friends. I look forward to building on these previous relationships, creating new ones and playing an active role in Dubbo's community.
