Annie has journeyed with Family Doctors Highton since its conception and is a familiar face to many of our patients. Armed with a Bachelor of Science (Biology), Annie seamlessly integrates her scientific knowledge with her well-honed administrative skills (over twenty years’ worth of experience!).
Behind her beautiful smile is one of the most beautiful hearts we know earning her many fans who drop off gifts, some of which are edible that she generously shares with all of us. Annie is married and have two beautiful children and a menagerie of animals!
The Christos adore farm life and love spending time outdoors. When not out chasing her cow, chooks and horses, you will find Annie in front of the computer trawling through birth records and family history to construct a treasured family tree.
Elaine is our pocket rocket! She grew up in Geelong and is completing a Bachelor of Primary Teaching at Deakin University. Elaine is well loved by everyone for her megawatt smile and big heart.
Besides being a super duper Medical Receptionist, Elaine loves playing tennis – she was ranked among the very best in Australia! If that’s not enough talent for one person, Elaine also plays the piano and the violin and speaks Cantonese.
When not studying or working, Elaine enjoys running and hanging out with friends and is mum to four fat, greedy guinea pigs.
Andrew is as local as they come, born and bred in Geelong, he exudes our beautiful city’s down to earth and friendly vibe. He is no stranger to providing excellent customer service having worked at a local ice cream shop for more than 7 years!
Besides being an expert in making yummylicious ice cream, Andrew is also an expert gamer (although Elaine would disagree!). His favourite game is Valorant.
Currently, Andrew is studying Psychology at Deakin University. We all love Andrew for his integrity and professionalism. Say hello to him when you call us, he will be the only male voice at reception (unless Dr Ern quits his day job).
Our youngest squad member is the helpful, clever and kind Chloe. She is studying at Uni and loves the idea of sowing into young people’s lives.
Chloe teaches the violin and plays with the Geelong Symphony Orchestra. She also loves reading and making covers with her ukulele for her YouTube channel which honed her video editing skills! Lucky for us because she's the talent behind Family Doctors Highton's awesome videos!
Watch some of them here! https://www.facebook.com/familydoctorshighton/videos/?ref=page_internal
We recommend "Who’s Happy School’s Back?", "Happy Hump Day" and "It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas". Hope it brings a smile to your dial.
AIR high-five her when you come in if you like her vids!
Where to begin with this amazing lady! She is trained as a Physiotherapist and have lived in many places in our magnificent world, including a fifteen-year stint in Northern Iraq. She generously shares her experiences with us and helps us expand our cultural awareness and improve our intercultural communication.
Elizabeth is married with four awesome children who share their parents’ passion and love for people. A strong believer in lifelong learning, Elizabeth eagerly embraces opportunities for self development, which probably explains why she is so multi-skilled! She also speaks Kurdish and is a ripper sewist and knitter!
(Psst ... She knitted that jumper she's wearing!)
No, you are not seeing double!
Besides being a Dietitian, Michelle is also Family Doctors Highton’s Practice Director!
Michelle firmly believes that to lead, you first must serve. So, you will see her quite a bit at Reception working and hanging out with the rest of our friendly and helpful Reception Squad.
(Psst...she did NOT knit that jumper she's wearing)
