I'm an optometrist based in Sydney, Australia. I recently graduated from UNSW Optometry School in 2018, and am now thoroughly enjoying my first optometry role working in a diverse community. I am excited for all the experiences to come as my career moves forward.
I have done minor day hikes in past, however, Eyes4Everest will be my first time jumping into a hike which involves altitude trekking and camping. It's something I have always wanted to do and I am grateful for the opportunity.
The Himalayan mountains look stunning in photography. Eyes4Everest will allow me to altitude trek for the first time in one of Earth's beautiful regions, while allowing me to use the skills I have learnt in optometry to help provide extremely valuable eye care to Nepalese communities along the way. Doesn't get any better than that!
