Kelly H

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.
