ABOC, Office Coordinator/Optician
Born and raised in the Philippines, I have been privileged to travel over the world and make my permanent home in the United States. Opportunities to serve as an Administrative Assistant, Office Manager as well as a Certified Optician have provided me with the capabilities, duties and responsibilities to accomplish my own personal goal toward excellence. Assisting the Doctor, overseeing operations, and educating patients, helps our office run smoothly and efficiently. Having been in the optometric industry for over 11 years, I believe that informing and educating patients is the best way to guide them to a knowledgeable decision. I am so happy to share the philosophy with the Tomlin Eye Care Team that our ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality of vision care with excellent customer service in a professional, yet personal and gracious environment.
