Kurt graduated from QUT in 1997 and began working in independent private practice in Brisbane. He moved to Adelaide in 1999 for what was originally a six month stint, and has worked primarily in the Glenelg and Christies Beach regions. With an interest in ocular diseases he completed his therapeutic qualifications in 2012. Kurt and Jenny were proud to start South Coast Optometrists in 2016, which was previously Graeme Jenkins Optometrist. They have a passion for optometry and caring for families in the local area. He has two sons, Alistair and Patrick, and sits on the Board of Optometry Victoria/South Australia.>
Jenny graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1998, after completing an externship in Nepal. As she grew up in rural Victoria, she spent the next few years working in Bendigo and Maryborough, before moving to Adelaide. In 2016 she and her husband Kurt proudly started South Coast Optometrists, which was previously known as Graeme Jenkins Optometrists. Jenny has a passion for patient care, loves working with children, and you'd be hard pressed to find a sunnier personality. She has two sons and a husband who keep her amused and exasperated in equal amounts, and can solve a Rubik's Cube in under four minutes. >

Hayley grew up in country Victoria and moved to South Australia to study Optometry at Flinders University. After discovering the stunning beaches she never wants to leave. Her special interests include children's vision assessment and vision training. She is qualified to prescribe eye-drop medications for conditions like glaucoma, infections, uveitis and dry eye. Her article about ‘Pseudoexfoliation Glaucoma’ has been published in Optometry Australia’s Pharma Journal and she has also presented at several continuing professional development seminars. >
I'm originally from Donald, a small country town in rural Victoria. I moved to Adelaide to study optometry at Flinders University in 2012. I've worked in both independent and corporate optometry since graduating but I have always found my way back to independently owned practices. I really enjoy the fact I can take time to build relationships with patients and of course, deliver comprehensive eye health examinations with the utmost care. I'm qualified to prescribe topical eye medications and I have a special interest in diagnosing and managing different eye diseases. In my spare time I love to bake all things sweet and enjoy Adelaide's most delicious eateries!>
