Joan joined the team at Somerville and Merrin Optometrists after graduating with a degree in Optometry from the Queensland University of Technology in 2019. She is a current member of Optometry Australia and holds qualifications in Ocular Therapeutics.
As well as delivering general eye care, Joan is also passionate in developing more experience and knowledge in the areas of ocular disease management, children’s eye care and contact lenses. She is also fluent in Mandarin and Taiwanese!
She loves anything health-related – from helping people, to sharing good conversations and meeting new people. A recent highlight was a mission trip she went on in 2018, where she was part of an enthusiastic group of optometrists providing free vision screenings in Mexico for the community in Ciudad Guzman. Outside of work, Joan is an avid reader, amateur artist and recreational pianist, who enjoys travelling to new places.
