Julie qualified as an optometrist in 2001 but has been involved in the science of eyes for much longer.
While studying for a physics degree, a focus on the biology of the eye ignited her interest in the subject and she went onto study for a PhD in Biophysics and the biology of human vision.
After teaching optics at Aston University, Julie decided that the relatively isolated world of academia wasn’t for her and completed a masters in optometry, and we’re so glad she did! Julie’s impressive achievements in optical science are complimented by her caring nature and warm personality, making her a wonderful optometrist, it’s no surprise then that she has a trusted local following.
Julie is a keen scuba diver and loves listening to rock music, especially if it's live and loud.
