Originally from Birmingham, Alison studied in Manchester, and qualified as an optometrist in 1989.
She spent a number of years working for high street multiples, but feels much more at home in an independent opticians.
"I like being able to give each individual as much attention as they need: I try to treat each patient like I would want a member of my own family to be treated".
"I understand about wearing varifocal glasses (its like having your younger eyes back), and wearing contact lenses for leisure activities ( cycling and eating cake)."
"My favourite time of year is Autumn- I love the colours. When I'm not in work, I like to be outside walking with friends and family. You might not guess... but I'm a pretty good open-water swimmer."
