Abby commenced her Optometry studies in 2014 after three years of full time experience in independent optometry in her home town of Macksville, NSW. Firstly studying optical dispensing, Abby decided optometry was her calling and studied Medical Laboratory Science for a year to transfer into the QUT optometry course. Abby started her Master of Optometry in February, 2017. Abby has vast experience as an optometric assistant, taking care of diagnostic imaging to assist our optometrists, and works closely with Kate in her PhD research. In her spare time, Abby enjoys baking, experimenting with new recipes, planning holidays, travelling the countryside and watching shows at QPAC.
