Lumino’s star athlete: Luke Simpson

LukeLuke has been a dentist at Lumino City Dental Tauranga since November 2009 after earlier working in Hamilton, Auckland and the UK.

As a schoolboy, Luke became interested in triathlons and competed regularly. Since school, the races and training have been rather more sporadic with Luke becoming interested in Skiing, Snowboarding and Mountain biking.

Luke was called in as a replacement swimmer for a team triathlon in January. This went better than expected so when Lumino became involved with the State New Zealand Ocean Swim, Luke was happy to accept the challenge.
