Linda joined our team in 2009 and became a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant in 2011.  She enjoys the challenges that she encounters as an Optometric Assistant, but mostly she enjoys the people she meets each day at the office.  When she is not busy helping the doctors with additional testing, you can find her in the dispensary assisting patients in choosing their next pair of glasses ensuring they are functional and fashionable. Linda believes that the training and education she receives are very important part of her job in the always changing field.

Amy joined our team in 2016 with a background in customer service and retail. She enjoys assisting our patients in selecting their new eyewear and keeps a close eye on our Contact Lens products.
