Sandy – Licensed Dispensing Optician
I can’t believe I’ve been in the optical industry for 35 years now. I’m so glad I chose this path over elementary education as I think this is such a good fit for me. I’ve had so many experiences from soldering frames to assisting surgeries. I’ve seen technology change before my eyes and I’m amazed by all the advances in our industry.
Westside Eye Center has and will be my home for quite some time. My current role here is management in the Optical and Contact lens departments. I also help out with visual field testing as well as overall office management. The most important and satisfying part of my job is getting to know and help our patients and being able to offer what’s best to meet their needs. It really is my privilege to work so closely with them; many of whom I now consider my friends.
In my off time, I enjoy playing the guitar and mandolin and have joined a bluegrass jam group. In the summer months, I work with our family business, “The Field Kitchen”, catering to all types of outdoor events. I have two grown boys of whom I adore and enjoy time with them whenever possible.
Jeannie has worked in the optical field for 40 years. She has been dispensing and fitting glasses for the last 11 of those years. She enjoys helping people choose the correct lenses and frames for their individual needs. Jeannie is soft spoken, kind and always willing to give her expert opinion. When outside the office, Jeannie enjoys gardening, antiquing and travel.
Diane has worked as a receptionist at our office for over 23 years! She always has a warm, fun smile and is inviting to everyone. She loves to get to know each patient and especially likes to swap fishing stories. Diane goes above and beyond to help each patient feel welcomed and cared for at each visit. When not at work, Diane loves to fish, boat and enjoy the great outdoors with her husband Ed.
Jean moved back to the Vancouver Area in 2008 to be closer to her son Michael & wife Jeannette in Portland and daughter Mary & husband John Elkin who live in Vancouver with her only grandchild, 7 year old Robby.
Jean joined the practice when Dr. Brittain purchased Westside Eye Center in August, 2009, as the bookkeeper. She brings an impressive 40 plus year history in accounting and management to our practice
