Cathie, Practice Manager

Cathie has been Practice Manager at Symonds Street Dental since August 2005.

She started her dental career as a Dental Assistant at a Queen Street practice back in the late 70’s. Since then Cathie has worked in administration in the Customs/Transport and Finance fields, but was always drawn back to dentistry as she loves working with people and helping them however she can.

Cathie has been married to Derrick for 30 years and they have two adult sons, Glenn and Aidan.
