What do you like the most about being an Optician?

My favorite part is getting to meet so many different people and improve their lifestyle with clear vision! I love blending function and fashion in eyewear. Glasses are a medically necessary accessory and a unique way to express your personality. As your optician, my priority is to ensure that your experience with your glasses is both enjoyable and effortless.

What brought you to the industry and how many years have you been an Optician?

Having recently graduated with a degree in photography, I fell into my first job as a frame stylist for a corporate retailer in 2011. I already had a solid background in lens optics, and quickly developed a genuine love for the industry! This is my 10th year practicing opticianry.

What are your favorite spots in Austin?

The Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Austin Botanical Gardens when the weather is nice.

What do you like to do outside of Optique?

I enjoy a never ending adventure decorating and redecorating our new home as a hobby! I love caring for our yard and have plans to make it a sustainable garden this year. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and still curl up to a good paperback on the weekends.
