Staff Profile - Jeanette Elliott
In her working life as receptionist/customer service officer she simply “gets enjoyment out of helping people.”
“When I started here I did an optical dispensing course by correspondence, with a week onsite in Randwick,” she says. Jeanette felt great satisfaction completing the training, her first formal education since school but quips that the maths element of the program was quite difficult.
Despite working five days a week, Jeanette and her husband find plenty of time for golf, often at Harden Country Club where she is on the committee – with a noteworthy handicap of eight.
For a recent major birthday she played at Scotland’s St Andrews. Her love for golf has also taken her across the globe with memorable rounds at Dubai Creek, Ria Bintan near Singapore and Mission Hills in China. Just like the clients she cares for at YOUNG EYES, “every golf course is different,” she notes. Before adding, “it’s a great place to work.”
