Board of Directors

We are managed by a Board of Directors elected from our membership. Where additional expertise is required to support strategy and governance the board seeks out and nominates up to two specific individuals to join the board.

The board is structured in such a way as to ensure that all sectors of the profession are suitably represented from early to mid-career, transitioning to retirement, large group corporate optometry to private practitioners, and locums. The Board of Directors meet monthly and our AGM takes place around October each year.

The 2022 OWA AGM took place on Wednesday 19th October and David Hsu stepped down from the board. Sinead Denny joins the OWA Board as a Director and non optometrist member, Alan Choy joins as a Co-opted Board member. The full OWA Board Members line up is shown below. Any questions regarding future involvement with the OWA Board, please email OWA CEO, Evan MacRae on

My name is Pricilla and I’m the ECO WA President.
I completed a Bachelor of Science (Microbiology and Immunology) at the University of Melbourne in 2013 and then continued post-graduate studies obtaining a Doctor of Optometry degree at the same university in 2017. I currently split my time working as a locum optometrist in metro and regional WA and working at the outpatient eye clinic at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. I have a special interest in myopia control and dry eyes.
I hope to help recent graduates build a supportive network as they transition into the workforce and through ECO, inspire others to find their area of interest and broaden their scope of practice.
