I trained at the Liverpool Eye Hospital as an ophthalmic nurse. After a transfer to general nursing, I moved to the Oxford Eye Hospital and returned to ophthalmic nursing for 10 years. Following a career change and qualifying as a Dispensing Optician in 2004, I worked in Oxfordshire for 7 years gaining experience in a variety of optical practices. I really enjoy advising on frame and lens selection. A nursing background gives me a keen interest in supporting the optometrists with advice or tests where its appropriate.

A lifetimes ambition to live close to the sea and learn to sail has brought me and my family to Cardigan.
