Leah-Cropped

Leah

Lead Optometric Technician

My work in optometry started in 1993 and one year later I began working at Eyecare Associates as their contact lens technician. Over the years I have enjoyed working in all departments within our office and for the last 14 years have been an optometric technician. I love working with our patients and enjoy seeing all of the familiar faces from the last 20+ years. When I am not working I spend time with my family and try to get outdoors as much as possible-I love the sun! Summertime is filled with swimming, camping and barbecues. The winter months we try to get away for a skiing when we can but usually stay close to home and go sledding instead. I am an artist so I create things when I get inspired and love to take photos, especially of my family and nature.

“All of our doctors and co-workers are a blast to work with, and everyday I look forward to seeing them. The part of my job that is most important to me is helping our patients sort out their balances with us and going to bat for them with the insurance company if they’ve been treated unfairly.”
