Liz received her Optometry degree from the Queensland University of Technology in 1990. She has post-graduate training in behavioural optometry and vision therapy. This interest grew from wearing glasses as a child and participating in vision therapy aged 5 for a lazy eye. Liz completed the behavioural optometry component of the UNSW Masters of Optometry in 2002 and then completed fellowship of the Australasian college of behavioural optometry (ACBO).
Liz provides full scope optometry care for glasses, contact lenses and eye health, and is also interested in managing myopia (shortsighted) progression. Liz is passionate about the changes that can occur by training the connection between the eyes and the brain. She has developed programs that work with vision problems impacting on reaching our full potential at school and life; including eye movement problems, convergence insufficiency, turned or lazy eye, and also children with special needs. Liz is also interested in working with adults who may have vision problems and adults with neurological conditions. You are never too young or too old to improve your vision.

- Optometry Association Australia ( OAA)
- Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists ( ACBO )
- On the examination board for ACBO
- On the South Western Allied Health Network (SWAHN) board to promote allied health in co-managing health conditions.
