How did you start in optics?
I joined Canterbury Eyecare in 2017 after I completed my Bachelor of Health Science at Deakin University. I have always had a really strong interest in the health field, so being part of the team at Canterbury Eyecare has been extremely rewarding as I can combine my interest in health with my love for helping and interacting with others.

I can speak Greek fluently and am currently studying Business at Swinburne.
What is your bucket list travel destination?
Coming from a Greek background, my number one bucket list travel destination would have to be Greece. In the next couple of years I would love to travel to Greece and explore the regions where my family grew up and to explore the islands.

I have a 12 year old pet cat named Pebbles. Pebbles is black and white (my very own Collingwood mascot) and is named after ex-Collingwood player Anthony Rocca whose nickname was Pebbles.
