Where the Passion Begins
He qualified Bachelor of Optometry at Auckland University and has been practising optometry for over 30 years (He is now seeing kids of kids he originally saw!!).
He is passionate about continued education, constantly updating his optometry knowledge and skills as well as finding the best solution for every client, whether it be leading-edge progressive lenses or referring to an ophthalmologist colleague for an eye condition.
Out of practice, he loves to spend time with his family; playing tennis and golf (in that order!) when he can. These days, he keeps his hair short so the greys don’t show up so much.
She has been qualified in NZ for over 20 years and is currently registered with the Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians Board of NZ. She has worked for various optometry practices throughout Auckland and Sydney for the past 20 or so years and has now worked at Blockhouse Bay Optometrists for over 7. She loves working in Blockhouse Bay, which has a laid-back friendly vibe, and it is a pleasure to help our customers to the level they deserve.
She continues to update her knowledge by attending national conferences and completing relevant online education modules, which helps her to provide our customers with the best possible solution for their eyewear requirements that also looks great!
She is also experienced in various frame adjustments and repairs, which can often be done on-site, while you wait.
In her spare time, she enjoys cuddles with her 2 cats, photography (including astrophotography), and traveling around our beautiful country with her husband.
Jennifer is originally from Canada but has been living in New Zealand for a number of years now. She brings over 15+ years in Customer Service and is truly passionate about helping others. She takes pride in providing the best service to our clients and always enjoys a friendly chat.
Outside of work Jennifer enjoys spending time with her Fiancé and stepson. She has a love for travel, house plants and spontaneous adventures. She also has a love for all animals, and enjoys spending time with her cat, chickens, and 2 dogs!
