Alison has been with Vision Splendid since 2010, having previously worked in optometry practices in Dubbo and Sydney as well as working as a locum in various locations. But it is back in her home town of Gunnedah where she has settled with husband, Alex. Now working part-time, she is trying to achieve that balance between her professional and home life that eludes most parents with small children! Alison has played hockey with a Tamworth team on and off for the past few years and hopes to take the field again in 2017. The purchase of a bicycle is also on the wish-list, followed closely by some free time in which to ride it!
Alison loves being a country optometrist and finds great satisfaction in the variety of the job. She has a special interest in ocular pathology and enjoys good relationships with both ophthalmology practices in Tamworth. Obtaining her graduate certificate in ocular therapeutics in 2012, Alison is able to prescribe drugs for many eye conditions which has helped enormously her ability to provide quality primary eyecare to the Gunnedah community.
