Certified Optician

I live in Cape Girardeau so I can be close to my sisters, niece and nephews who occupy a lot of my free time. Going to their events and being a support to them brings me joy. I also enjoy going to Church and reading. I have been in the optical field for 27 years and have worked at Bell Family Eye Care for 12 years. The best part of my job is helping people find the perfect pair of glasses and getting to see a patient’s reaction to having clear vision. I feel honored to be a part of such an amazing and dynamic team here at Bell Family Eye Care
