Sharman

Sharman has been with Eyecare Associates for 40 years. She is ABO certified as an optician, can train patients new to contact lenses, schedule appointments, triage patients, and so much more. With every passing year, she continues to grow.

Sharman is Eyecare Associates. She embodies our team spirit and our 5 star customer service mentality. She connects with the other employees at a very intimate level with her very honest, giving and caring nature. And, because she would not write these sentiments about herself, we take this opportunity to share our warm thoughts with all of those who know her and all of those who have not yet had the pleasure.

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.

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!

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.

Wendy

Wendy

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!

I moved to Fort Collins to begin college at CSU about three years ago. Instantly I felt welcomed by this community and fell in love with living here. I recently began working as an optician here at Eyecare Associates and have been amazed every day by the dedication of this team to each of our patients. In my free time, I take my pug, Lily, and pug-mix, Fig, to the dog parks and explore the foothills right down the road!

Heather-Cropped

Heather

Certified Medical Billing Specialist and Patient Accounts Coordinator

I am a certified medical billing specialist, and I have been at ECA since I graduated from IBMC in 2015 with an associates degree in medical billing. I recently took advantage of the wonderful opportunity our doctors and practice manager gave us to earn an additional certification through the AOA as a certified paraoptometric coder. All of our doctors and co-workers are a blast to work with, and every day 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.

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!
