Genevieve made enormous contributions to the profession of optometry, to Optometry Victoria, and to the eye health of vulnerable members of the community, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Genevieve was the winner of the Department’s Alumnus Award in 2019.  She will be missed.

You can read an extended tribute written by Helen Carter on the Optometry Australia website.
