Dr. Mowbray completed a double major in his undergraduate studies: a Bachelor of Science at the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Business Administration at Wilfrid Laurier University. He then went on to get his Doctorate of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.
After graduating he moved to Vancouver in early 2000 and joined Dr. Robin Simpson here at MPOC as an associate. In 2006, Dr. Mowbray took over ownership of the clinic, and proceeded to expand the practice to match the growth of the neighbourhood.
In 2018 our building came up for sale and Dr. Mowbray bought it and undertook a renovation which effectively tripled our office space. Our team has since grown to over 30 members, and we serve over 70,000 patients.
As of 2020 Dr. Mowbray has stopped seeing patients and is focussing his time on managing the clinic and the related administrative duties. He can still be found around the clinic on the regular, where he enjoys meeting and catching up with our patients and long-term supporters.
