We are greatful to have Ashleigh join us to the Everest Base Camp this year!

Ashleigh is a Canberran optometrist who graduated from Deakin University in 2017. Since she was a little girl, Ashleigh has had a passion for volunteering and helping out where there is a need. In 2014, she volunteered at an orphanage in Sri Lanka and assisted in paediatric medical screenings in the remote villages – this was where her eyes were opened to the need for eye care and her love of optometry began.  To be able to bring this passion and her optometry skills to communities with limited access to eye care, and to combine this with her love of hiking, is a dream come true.
