Why did you get into Optics?
Having a scientific background, I was fascinated by the workings of spectacle lenses and the technologies that are available to help aid my vision.
What is your favourite brand of eyewear and why?
I love the Tiffany and Co brand as I love what the brand represents: old school glamour and sophistication.
What is your most memorable patient experience?
I have dispensed many very young children their first pair of spectacles and when they have come to collect, and you see their little faces light up, it is an amazing feeling!
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love holidaying in warmer climates and travelling in the UK. I spend much of my time visiting family in Ayr and Livingston, and I enjoy looking after my two young nieces when I get the chance.
Where is your favourite holiday destination?
I enjoy soaking up the sun in Tenerife and shopping on The Golden mile in Playa Las Americas. But I equally enjoy a UK holiday by the sea, either a few days at my parents in Ayr when the weather is good and or a little further away in the seaside town of Whitby
What is your favourite movie or book?
I like typical girlie romantic comedies such as You’ve got Mail, Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral just to name a few.
