I grew up in Urbandale, IA and have called Cedar Rapids my home since 2005. I love to travel wherever the wind takes me or at least until the funds hold out! I have been honing my craft since 1997, when I started out as an optical tech. Over the years, I've experienced every facet of the optical industry, from behind the scenes in the lab, to helping patients find their inner voice with their eyewear! I am true believer in letting your eyewear express who you are and who you want to be. I may be quiet sometimes, but don’t let that fool you. My sass is hidden right beneath the surface, just ask my 2 beautiful daughters!
