Christina is passionate about public health eye care and believes everyone should have access to eye care services. She is dedicated to working with refugees to minimise avoidable vision impairment and improve eye health outcomes by increasing access to optometry services.


For over 10 years, Christina has worked with not-for-profit organisations to provide outreach optometry services to underserved populations, including aged care facilities, homeless shelters, and remote Aboriginal communities. To complement her outreach work, she has coordinated and managed national eye care programs to increase awareness and education of eye health through the Brien Holden Foundation and Macular Disease Foundation Australia.


Christina has a Bachelor of Optometry from the University of Melbourne, and a Master of Public Health and a Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching from the University of New South Wales.


Christina has presented on the "Eye Health Status of Newly Arrived Refugees in Adelaide, South Australia" at the World Congress of Optometry conference. She has also trained future generations of optometrists as a lecturer and tutor at several optometry schools across Australia.
