About M Shepherd Optometrist
At M Shepherd we offer a professional yet personal and caring service.
Here you'll experience the feel of a family run business and the expertise of a team of highly trained people with a true passion for the work they do. Husband and wife team Michael and Helen Shepherd run the practice with the help of Helen's mum, Judy.
Here's an introduction of the team you will meet when you visit us at the practice:
Michael Shepherd Bsc(Hons) – Optometrist
Michael graduated from UMIST in 1998. He worked for over 13 years in a leading, prestigious independent practice in East Anglia before opening M Shepherd Optometrist with wife Helen in January 2012. Optometry and eye care runs in the family as Michael's father is a retired ophthalmologist.
In his spare time Michael enjoys walking and cycling as well as listening to music.
Helen Shepherd – Practice Manager and Reception
Helen had over 12 years' experience in customer service before opening M Shepherd Optometrist in January 2012 with Michael. Helen ensures the smooth day to day running of the practice as well as managing reception. She's also responsible for all the frame buying and the window displays in the practice - which patients are always very complimentary about!
Helen is a keen cyclist in her spare time and has done some long distance rides for charity. She also does a bit of running as well as painting and drawing.
Judy Davis – Reception
Judy has many years' experience in the retail sector. She shares reception duties with Helen and looks after the practice reminders so will give you a call when you're due for your routine eye test.
In her spare time Judy enjoys swimming, walking as well as sewing and drawing.
