We're clearly committed to your vision health
Licensed Optician/Office Manager
Karen stumbled across the world of eye care by chance. She went to an interview for a receptionist job at Sears and only found out at the last minute it was in the Optical Department. She got that job and hasn’t looked back since. After graduating high school, Karen took the two-year Ophthalmic Dispensing course at NAIT to become a licensed optician. She now has more than 16 years of experience, two of those at Spruce Grove Vision Care. Karen loves coming to work because she gets to assist patients every day, whether it’s helping them purchase eyewear, or problem-solving. She also loves managing her talented team at the clinic.
