Since graduation from SUNY Optometry in 2008, I have focused on working in private practice, and now I am able to at my 5 locations!
After working at Sterling Optical and Lenscrafters for a few years, I knew I wanted to pursue my own business. I became an independent doctor at the end of 2011, and that is when I started working at Hamburg Optical. As soon as I started there I began learning how to run the business and I began to enjoy the ins and outs of the optical world.
In February of 2013 I became the new owner of Hamburg Optical and I have loved it from the start!
I have always been a southtowns girl. I grew up in Orchard Park, graduating from the high school in 2001. Then I continued on at SUNY Fredonia earning my Bachelor's of Science in Biology. Moving to NYC was a great adventure. I was able to attend SUNY Optometry in the middle of Manhattan. A few years later, I was an eye doctor and ready to come back home.
I currently live in the village of Hamburg with my husband Jack and our one year old, Abigail. I am blessed to have such a beautiful family and to have Jack who manages and supports all locations.
In August of 2014, we were able to purchase the Value Vision family which has 3 locations. We were able to save many union jobs of loyal associates. It has been a wonderful opportunity to work with such an experienced staff. The Value Vision stores are focused on providing the best value for you and your family while still offering the latest in designer fashions. In 2015 we added our 5th location in Tonawanda. This was a mix of adding a northtowns location while purchasing Council of Opticians of Tonawanda.
Thanks for visiting! Our staff and I look forward to helping you and your family with all your vision and eye care needs!
