Lore Marguillier

Receptionist/administrator
Qualification
BEd. Secondary Education French & English
Bio

Lore is not your ordinary receptionist. She is outgoing, friendly, polite and caring, character traits that come in handy in her current role with us. Lore’s passion for both taking care of people, helping and assisting others was ignited in her former role as a flight attendant. She loves flying and travelling the world! It is not a surprise then really that one day she would meet her Australian partner in life in a country far away to then move to our beloved Sydney. Before this big adventure begun, she studied Secondary Education French and English to improve her language skills.

Lore has added a European influence to our practice. Originally from Belgium, she is able to speak 4 languages! You’ll occasionally hear a guten tag or an au revoir or she’ll tell you about her home country whilst you wait for your appointment with a nice beverage on our comfy lounge.

Lore enjoys having her daily chats with our patients and providing them with excellent experiences. She has an eye for detail and a ‘get things done’ ethic. But most importantly, she loves making sure our visitors feel welcome and very well looked after.
