Shane Tromp

Managing Director

Shane is the managing director of Noosa Optical and is co-owner with Catherine. He is certified in advanced optics and he also brings a personal enthusiasm for customized eyewear solutions.

Behind the scenes, Shane takes care of the administrative side of things, so the practice runs smoothly. As an independent practice, there isn’t any head office to do those jobs for us. So Shane’s role is to cover those bases.

Tahlia, Optical Assistant

Tahlia is who you’ll talk to on the phone and meet when you first arrive at our practice. Behind the scenes, Tahlia communicates with our suppliers and patients and is learning all about optics. She also looks after our appointment book and helps to ensure products are delivered on time.
