I qualified in 2011 and have been working with Mike and the team at McAteers since 2019. I have a special interest in paediatric optometry and dry eye assessments so love getting involved in the tear clinic. I work closely with Mike when reviewing and interpreting the OCT images. Outside of work I love to travel and am also a real bookworm.

Having qualified 16 years ago, I have worked with Mike for the past 4 years. I enjoy all aspects of Optometry, but have particularly enjoyed utilising the state of the art technology at McAteers, ranging from OCT scanning to ReadEZ Screening Software for diagnosing and managing visual stress. I love working in a family owned independent practice and having the time to get to know our lovely patients and taking care of their eyecare needs.
