Nicole grew up on the Gold Coast and graduated from optometry at QUT in 1995. One of her final clinical placements during her degree was at the Vision’s Southport practice with Michael Hare, so Nicole has had a very long association with the practice.
Since graduating, Nicole has enjoyed working in private practice and spending the time required to fully understand her patient’s visual needs so she can provide them with the optimal solution for their lifestyle. She also has an interest in eye disease and treatment and is currently studying to gain her Graduate Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics through the Australian College of Optometry (ACO).
Outside of work, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband and four children and particularly enjoys any opportunity to travel with her family.
