Leah - Eye Care Staff

Leah T

Lead Certified Paraoptometric Assistant

My work in optometry started in 1993, and one year later I began working at Eyecare Associates as a contact lens technician. In 2003, after a 3 year break, I returned to work in our clinic and have been working as a certified optometric technician ever since. Seeing all of the familiar faces from the last 20+ years is awesome! When I am not working, I try to get outdoors as much as possible to spend time in my flower gardens-I love the sun! Summertime is filled with lots of barbecues and fire pit nights with family and friendsIn the winter months, we try to get away for skiing when we can. I am an artist, so I create things when I get inspired and love to take photos, especially of my family and nature.

I have worked as a Certifed Paraoptometric Technician at Eyecare Associates since 2004.  I have gotten the pleasure of being able to be a part of this place grow over the years into the amazing practice that we are now.  I am a Colorado native and a huge CSU Rams, Denver Broncos and Rockies fan. My free time is spent watching my teenage son play baseball (which takes up a lot) and spending time with my 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.  My husband and I also enjoy watching lots of movies and various shows whenever we have time.

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.

Hello! I am a Certified Medical Assistant. I have been with ECA since August 2020. Quality patient care is a priority and I strive to provide a personable and professional encounter with every patient. Optometry is an incredible specialty and I am honored to learn and grow with this team every day. 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) Goldendoodle, Ladybird. I enjoy spending my time rollerblading, walking my dog , listening to podcasts or watching a reality tv show and taking major naps. I look forward to being your tech!

Rebecca

Optometric Technician

Hi, my name is Rebecca! I started at EyeCare Associate in April 2021. 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 - Our Eye Care Staff

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.

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!
