Heather graduated from Queensland University of Technology in 1980 after which she acquired a diversity of experience including working in many regional locations in Australia & in the United Kingdom ranging from traditional Optometry to Occupational Health & Safety in the mines to Indigenous Community Health with the National Trachoma Scheme.

Heather commenced practice in Cooroy in 1997, initially part-time, but as Cooroy continued to grow, so has the practice. To help meet this increasing need, in late 2007 Heather invited another Sunshine Coast optometrist, Jennifer Currie, to join her as a partner.

Heather has a passion for behavioural optometry. She is a founding member of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists (ACBO) & a long-time member of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD).  As such, a large part of her practice has been in the area of paediatric vision care including the assessment & treatment of learning-related vision problems & binocular vision dysfunction.

Heather has recently completed her Graduate Certicate in Ocular Therapeutics with Queensland University of Technology. She is now qualified to prescribe a range of topical ocular pharmaceuticals for treatment of eye disease.  She has developed a special interest in the treatment of dry eye conditions.
