What do you like the most about being an Optician?
I like dispensing a patients glasses after having spent time going over the best frame and lens options for their prescription. The delight on their faces when they realize how well they see and how good they look is incredible!
What brought you to the industry and how many years have you been an Optician?
I knew I wanted to work in healthcare, and I’d recently had a wonderful experience with an optician who helped me pick out some glasses I was treating myself with for my birthday. I started as an optometric tech 12 years ago and have been an optician for 10 years.
What are your favorite spots in Austin?
Alamo Drafthouse, ABGB, and running around the lake.
What do you like to do outside of Optique?
Pre-Covid you could find us watching a movie. Now, my 2 kids and I skate in empty school parking lots.
