Heather: Optician (ABOC)

Heather1Heather proudly joined Team Elevated in 2016. While going to school for nursing, Heather started her optical journey in 2014 and immediately knew she wanted to change career paths and become an optician. She brings 10 years of customer care experience & is currently studying for her ABO certification. Heather shows up to work with a strong passion for what she does and always hungry for more knowledge about anything optical. She enjoys getting to know a patient's lifestyle & needs for exactly what would work best for them. Heather takes great pride in being sure that each and every patient purchasing glasses receive the proper products, including the most leading-edge technology in both lenses and frames. When she is not in the office, you can find her hiking, hula-hooping, or sometimes both at the same time!
