I have been working for Dr. Rettig since November 2018, but have been in the optical field for 4 years previously. I work with patients and assist on selecting the right frame and lens choices for their everyday needs. I am also currently enrolled in classes to earn my Bachelors in General Studies with an emphasis in Health and Human Performance, while also continuing my education to become a Certified Optician. Outside of work, I spend most of my spare time with my Alaskan Malamute Chinook and also enjoy riding my bicycle, running or kayaking.
