Volunteer profile: Lauren Melitsis

November 22, 2017

Lauren is studying to become an audiologist and was keen to find a volunteering role which would provide valuable work experience.


"I started looking for opportunities and the Eye and Ear was the perfect fit.

"I help in the Emergency Department one day a week which leaves me time to focus on my university course and work part-time too."

Lauren began volunteering almost two years ago."I greet people when they arrive, help direct them to the right place and provide a reassuring, calm presence in the waiting room."

She enjoys giving back to the community and says it has helped to build her confidence with patients.

Lauren recommends volunteering at the Eye and Ear to others and friends from her course now also help out.
