Brett JenkinsonPrincipal Optometrist | BOptom FAAO GradCertOcTher
Brett completed his Bachelor of Optometry degree at Melbourne University, graduating in 2001. His first job was with Laubman & Pank Optometrists in Kingaroy.
While there, he met his wife, Carmen. They were married in 2004 and moved to Hobart for a fresh start in 2006.
In Hobart, Brett became the youngest partner of the largest locally-owned Optometry group, Total Eyecare. He took an active role in the Optometry Association and became Tasmanian President in 2012.
Also while in Hobart, Brett became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and completed his Graduate Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics, allowing him to prescribe optical medicines.
In November 2017 Brett was appointed to the Board of Directors of ProVision, a national member organisation supporting over 400 independent optometrists.
During his 16 year career, Brett has developed a keen interest in contact lenses, orthokeratology (overnight contact lenses for short-sightedness that allow lens-free daytime vision) and in particular found a challenge in complex cornea and contact lens fitting.
With their two children, Sean and Amelia, Brett and Carmen return home to Brisbane in June 2017 to build upon the success of Kay and David Webster’s long-running practice.
Carmen JenkinsonOperations Manager
Carmen came to optometry via husband, Brett when she started providing some marketing support to Total Eyecare ‘on the side’. When ‘on the side’ turned into ‘Marketing Manager’, her former fundraising career fell away.
Carmen’s work life began in the not-for-profit sector after graduating from QUT with a Business degree. Fundraising for organisations including The Salvation Army, Cancer Council, and Diabetes Tasmania led her to a Directorship with the Fundraising Institute of Australia.
In amongst that, Carmen & Brett had two delightful children, Sean (10) and Amelia (8). You might see the Jenkinson kids around the practice after school!
You’ll find Carmen working in the practice, helping with frame selection and dispensing as well as marketing and business operations for Fresh Vision.
