Helen Medley


I started my Optometry career in 2007 in West Gippsland, after working with Jenny and Eric at Donvale Optical on the weekend during my studies. I enjoyed the variety and challenge that country practice brought. We relocated to Melbourne in 2012, and I worked in various part-time roles in private practice when my children were in their preschool years. It's great to be back at Donvale Optical, especially as I spent my childhood in a house just down the road! I am passionate about improving and optimizing the visual and eye health outcomes of my patients. When not working, I am a mum to Xavier & Renee. I enjoy walking, volunteering with Mainly Music and at my local church, and cooking.
