Solana Gilmore

Solana Gilmore

Receptionist/Dental Assistant

Solana came to Australia from the USA (Possibly another planet) back in 2004. She has been vaguely nomadic, living briefly in Victoria, NSW, and multiple locations up and down the lower portion of QLD.

She’s a bit of a lucky dip, having extensive experience in retail (electronic entertainment and textiles), a dash through warehousing and naturopathic suppliers and took a breather in the dental world.

She has been doing chairside assisting and reception duties for half a decade. Outside of work she is essentially a hermit. She loves all things pop culture, is usually writing, reading fanfic or playing video games. She is teaching herself how to do 3D sculpting and will happily chat about movies with you basically forever.

Her spirit animals are the sloth, the honey badger, and potoo.
