Kelly

Fun, fashionable, fantastic frame board manager

Please meet Kelly!

Born and raised in Martinsville, VA, Kelly made her move to Blacksburg in 2007. Since then, she has gotten married, and is the mother of a gorgeous and brilliant young boy.

She enjoys long walks on the beach, spending time with her family and reading whatever she can get her hands on. In the office, she is the first smiling face you will see, and we could not be happier about that. Her presence is warm and inviting and will make you feel right at home. She’s proven to be a great fit here, and we hope to have her as part of our family for many years to come!

Mechelle

Overall, knows it all…Office Manager

We just celebrated Mechelle's 20th anniversary as a member of our team. When she joined us in November 1999 she was new to the optical field, but we sensed immediately that she was a keeper.

In the past 20 years, with the utmost patience and pleasantness Mechelle has helped more patients, answered more questions and solved more problems than there are Hokiestones in all the buildings of Virginia Tech.

Come in and give her a try. She won't disappoint.

Amanda

Lab specialist, lens whiz, ball of fire

Amanda came on board in early July 2000, so getting ready to celebrate 20 years very soon!!!.

Originally a member of our front office staff, Amanda moved to the lab in 2005 and oversees our ophthalmic lens department.

She has an extensive knowledge of lens materials, enhancements, availability, and what frame and lens combinations best complement one another. She loves working with patients, so she makes time to help out front whenever she can. But if you hear someone singing along to Johnny Cash on her phone, you know Amanda's hard at work in the lab.

Darlene

Contact Lens Manager

Darlene joined the staff in October 2007.

We knew she'd fit in well when she began trading barbs with Fran on the day of her interview.

She is a self-described 'military brat' and graduate of Radford University.
