I After finishing my post-university training in 1990, I found myself working with a well-known national optometrists and progressed onto various positions including as an Optometrist Manager in the City.
This whet my appetite for a more customer focused environment. So when approached by an old colleague who had set up her own practice, I dived into the world of independent optometrists and never looked back.
I’ve had the pleasure to be part of the team at Perspective Optometrists since 2013. Our regular customers often mistake me for Rupal, although most would say I’m somewhat smaller and rounder. It’s our smiles they say – a lovely compliment.
Over the years I’ve invested in various postgraduate courses to further my skillset. The one that gives me the most satisfaction is the paediatric qualification, a skill that not many optometrists invest in, but in my experience is one of the most rewarding professionally. I’m hoping to do the medical retina course next year once my youngest has got through his GCSE year.
In my spare time, I love to paint, craft and see friends.
