My career in the optical industry dates back to 1984 and begins in Arlington Illinois. My experience includes frames stylist, optical assistant, lab manager as well as Optician. I have achieved designation as American Board of Opticianry Certified (ABOC). I utilized my skills in a large clinic in Fairbanks, Alaska for 9 years before returning to the Copper Country to be closer to my family. I enjoy perfecting your eyewear adjustments with a strong understanding of lenses to help people see their best.

I am also a self taught watercolor artist and routinely share my skills in classes for budding artists.
