Rowena started the practice in Avalon in 1999, choosing optometry as her profession because of its connection with people. Vision is such an important sense and when things aren’t right it can significantly impact quality of life. Volunteering in Sumba Indonesia and in rural NSW in the Aboriginal Eyecare Teams in addition to consulting to the Optometric and the Pharmaceutical industry’s has given a range of experiences in changing lives through vision.
As a director on the Board of ProVision, she is passionate about independent practice in Optometry. Outside of work, she loves spending time with family and friends – walking, at the beach, out sailing or a little away from Avalon – on the ski slopes.
