Describe your typical day?
I don't think a typical working day exists for me, which is one of the reasons I enjoy my job. My working week can involve visits to optometric practices or hospitals to provide clinical education on OCT, desk time for writing articles and planning educational content for Topcon conferences.
Who's has steered your career path to date?
Professor Christine Purslow has been a constant source of inspiration and guidance right through from my undergraduate studies to the present day.
What one development has most affected practitioners in recent years?
Given my background, I would have to say it is the introduction of OCT. I think OCT within optometry practices will become crucial in managing an ageing population.
