Leah-Cropped

Leah

Lead Certified Paraoptometric Assistant

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.

Optometric Technician

I am a new addition to the Eyecare Associates team as an optometric technician and love getting to spend time with all of our patients! I am a recent CSU graduate (Go Rams!) and have high aspirations to attend medical school to become a cardiothoracic surgeon. In my free time, I like to run, paddle-board, teach group fitness classes, and spend time with my mini aussie, Genny!

Amber

Optometric Technician

I have worked as an optometric technician since 2016. My main goal in life is to make people smile, even if it takes a corny joke. I love helping people, and I think that is why I have enjoyed being a technician for the past few years. I was born in Loveland and recently moved to Evans. I married my awesome husband in June of 2019, but we have been together since 2012. When I'm not cracking jokes at work you can find me at a 5 am workout class, I wish I was joking about that, or at home spending time with my husband and our two black labs, Tucker and Avery.

Angel

Optometric Technician/CMA

I am a Certified Medical Assistant r. I have been a CMA since February when I graduated from IBMC College. Patient care is an absolute passion of mine and I have always been fascinated by eyecare. I am thrilled to learn more about optometry and to be a part of this great team. I grew up in two little mountain towns: Manitou Springs, CO, and Nederland, CO. I currently reside in Northern Colorado with my adorable (very spoiled) Golden doodles, Ike and Ladybird. I enjoy spending my time by walking my dogs, listening to podcasts, and doing various projects around the house.

Rebecca

Optometric Technician

Hi, my name is Rebecca! I've been working as a medical assistant for about a year and a half in an urgent care setting. After taking a short break due to the pandemic I decided I wanted to work in a more specialized field. I've always been fascinated by the eyes and how they allow us to experience the world, so becoming an optometric technician felt like the perfect fit! As a Fort Collins native, I love the opportunity to interact with the community and help improve everyone's lives. In my free time I crochet or quilt blankets and other items for my family and friends. When I'm not crafting, I can frequently be found watching Japanese cartoons or playing video games.

Anthony

Optometric Technician

Originally from the plains of Colorado, I moved to Fort Collins in 2012 to pursue a degree at CSU. I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and spent some time as a medical scribe for a small family medicine clinic. I’m new to specializing in eye care, but learning the technology and techniques involved with examinations is a fascinating new journey. In my free time, I like to hike, play sports, and frisbee golf if the weather cooperates; however, I’ll always enjoy a good movie, board game, or video game without any complaints.

In my free time I love to ski, hike, fly fish, and play soccer with my younger brothers!

I recently graduated from CSU, where I earned a Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences. While in school, I worked as a CNA in the hospital system here in northern Colorado. After graduating, I joined the team here at Eyecare Associates and have enjoyed every bit of it! While not at work, you can find me hiking, mountain biking, or hanging out with my horse. Optometry has been an unexpected joy in my career, and I'm excited to see where it takes me!

I'm so excited to be a part of the Eyecare Associates team as an Optometric Technician. I hope to continue my journey in eye care by attending optometry school to become an Optometrist. In my free time, I enjoy getting outside to enjoy all of the outdoor activities Colorado is known for and spending time with family and friends.

Outreach Coordinator and Contact Lens Technician

I have always worked closely with people as a Massage Therapist before I retired and found a home here at Eyecare Associates. I started as a Patient Care Coordinator and then transitioned to the Outreach Coordinator position and Contact Lens Technician. I have a loving husband, daughter, 2 cats and 2 dogs, all of whom are spoiled. If I am not at work me and my family are working hard making an oasis in our backyard or camping. Sometimes if I am lucky I will catch a nap on the weekends, because who doesn’t love a nap!

I'm a mid-west gal with roots in Nebraska and Iowa, but I love Colorado - especially Fort Collins! I wake up every morning thanking myself for moving myself out here in 2017. I'm new to the optical world but I've got a background and degree in Design and lots of experience in the fashion world, which makes helping pick out glasses with people the best part of my job! In my spare time, I like to bake sweet treats and playing my music louder than I should!

Daniel

ABO Certified Optician

I have been in the Optical profession since 1987. In that time, I've learned to appreciate each patient's individual needs. Be it golfing glasses, music glasses, computer glasses... you name it. I take great pride in helping them build the best glasses they've ever had! When I'm not here, I enjoy playing golf and hockey. "Movie Night" is awesome, too!

Earvin

Optician

My dad thought it'd be cool to name me after Magic Johnson. Originally from New York, I've lived in Fort Collins for 4 years and in CO for 8 years. I've been an optician for almost 5 years now. I found optician work to be fulfilling for not only my own needs but for that of my friends and family. I live with my partner and three beautiful daughters and a cat (also a lady). My style is "1940's Federal Agent meets "IN LIVING COLOR" aesthetic. If you want to see what that means come by for a visit and fitting.

Dawn Dittmar, MHA

Practice Administrator

I have been with Eyecare Associates for a number of years and it is such a pleasure to work with the staff and doctors. ECA stands behind their employees and really encourages feedback, continuing education, and friendship. The patients have been around generation to generation and it is nice to see returning families every year and watch their children grow up. No company is perfect, but if you are looking for a patient and employee friendly environment, ECA stands above the rest!
