I’m a recent graduate of Eastern High School and came to work with Opticare shortly after graduation. Working at Opticare has helped give me an understanding of the many vision needs people have. Some of my duties include pretesting, dispensing, frame and lens selection, order entries and contact lens training. Of these, my favorite is dispensing, and frame selection. I love working one on one with our patients and helping them find the perfect pair of glasses; then being able to see the patient when the come to pick up their glasses and adjusting their glasses to give them the best possible fit for the best possible vision! My long term goal is to learn as much as I can so that I can to become a licensed optician; so that I can better educate patients on their eye care health and vision needs.
I have worked in the optical field for almost four years. I joined Wilmington Vision Center in January of 2015 and am registered with the state board, currently working towards taking the Ohio Optical License Exam. Working at Wilmington Vision Center has allowed me the opportunity to learn more and apply that knowledge to assist our patients. My primary role with WVC is at the front desk. This includes answering phone calls, scheduling appointments, and verification of insurance information. In addition to my primary duties, I help dispense glasses and aid with frame and lens selection, as well as pre-testing.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I have been married 9 years and have one daughter, who recently became an RN. I also enjoy art, photography, and reading .In 2009, I went back to school and received my degree in Applied Science, Graphic Design. I am an active member at my church. I enjoy volunteering during church activities and helping those less fortunate. I enjoy working at WVC and assisting people with their vision needs. For me, it is an extremely rewarding career that offers new experiences every day.
