Evelyn studied dentistry at Griffith University and received her Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Graduate Diploma in Dentistry in 2017. She keeps up to date with new knowledge and techniques through continuing education courses, online lectures, webinars and bi-monthly dentistry study club meetings. She has a particular interest in children airway health and oral facial myofunctional therapy.

She originally started her professional career as a qualified speech pathologist working with children before pursuing her dentistry degree. Although Evelyn loved working and helping children, she wanted to pursue a more hands-on career that involved health care and creativity whilst still helping people. For her, dentistry allows her to combine her love of science, art and helping others.

When she’s not at the practice, you can find Evelyn powerlifting at Valhalla Strength. Since starting powerlifting she has been able to achieve many personal goals and encourages others to try the sport. She also enjoys drawing, painting and pursuing musical interests.
