Mariam graduated with a Bachelor in Vision Science and Masters of Optometry from Deakin University. During her study, Mariam gained 3 years' experience working as an Optical Dispenser. Mariam's placement in Ballarat has given her experience working in Regional Victoria. She has also spent time in a Behavioural Optometry and Contact Lens practice in Melbourne learning the ins and outs of children's vision and contact lens fittings. She is therapeutically endorsed. In non-COVID times, Mariam enjoys traveling and is looking forward to be able to do that again soon. Mariam is interested in dry eye treatment, Paediatric Optometry, and everything else! She looks forward to getting to know the LaTrobe Valley community and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with her.
