Amanda has joined our team at Okotoks Eyecare once again and is happy to be back with her work ‘sistas’. Her roots in the optical industry began in the early 1980’s as a receptionist at a small Calgary optical shop on 4th where she soon went on to learn the trade of Opticianry under the clever skills and craftsmanship of what she calls her ‘Master Optician’. ‘He taught me all I know and anything else came from the day-to-day interaction with customers’. Amanda love working in a small community. She loves the daily challenges and rewards, the problem solving, the building of relationships and the business of the office however her greatest joy is found in corresponding with patients. Taking the time to not only choose, educate and prepare glasses but taking the time to listen to everyone’s story. We all have a story to tell and sometimes the biggest service we can provide is in the listening.
