This is one of two Kelly’s on our Family Eyecare Centre team. She’s Kelly 1 or Kelly 2 (depending who you ask). But if you’re looking for her specifically it’s recommended that you ask for Kelly H.Kelly is a born and raised island girl. She leapt in the optical world in 2015 – by accident really. She thought she was applying to be a receptionist but we trained her as an optical dispenser instead. After a year of dispensing she got her foot in the door to Vision Therapy and there’s no stopping her now. She is our fully certified Vision Therapist and you can hear her laugh from every corner of our office.You can usually hear her discussing family, soccer, travel, dogs, and lunch. Mainly lunch.
Starting as an Optical Technician in 1979, Ed became a Licensed Optician in 1984. He has been an integral part of our team since 2012.Ed is our go-to guy for the patients with more complex prescriptions and has developed quite a cult following!Ed is usually found in the lab tracing, cutting your lenses and singing along to rockstar tunes.Ed is passionate about his music and any new electronic gadgets.
Anita first joined the practice in 1988, but by popular demand has returned after a brief break from the office. Like several other members of staff, she began working with us at the front desk and then further expanded her skillset in dispensing. She loves working with patients and listening to their stories. Anita fulfills our workforce by joining us on Saturdays, but her teamwork spirit is felt throughout the week.
Abi is the residential Brit of the bunch (often mistaken for Australian but she is not). Abi joined the team in April 2017 and has not looked back. She has dabbled in many areas of the practice, including the front desk, dispensing, helping Kiran choose new frames, and Vision Therapy. Currently she is a full-time dispenser—enrolled in a course to be a certified Optometric Assistant, and does Vision Therapy part time. When she is not helping patients, she is either updating the practice’s Instagram or Facebook page, or cleaning.
Abi loves Dairy Milk chocolate and hiking.
Originally from the West Coast, earned a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology with Honours from UBC and a Doctorate of Optometry from the Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon. With great pleasure she joined the team at the Family Eyecare Centre in 2010.
