Valerie – Office Manager


I began my optical career in 2004 and earned certification through the American Board of Opticianry in 2010. As our clinic team lead I am happy to answer all of your questions, seeking to find a quality solution for every optical need. I work hard to make sure each patient feels at ease during their pre-testing process and enjoy assisting in finding the perfect eyewear for your lifestyle. My goal is to provide each patient with personalized eye care while upholding the prompt and professional service you deserve.

I like to spend my free time going on outdoor hiking adventures, watching football, taking fun family trips and meeting new friends. I also enjoy painting, reading and watching scary movies!

Enriqueta – Office Manager

QuetaEnriqueta has been in the optical business ten years this year. She is ABO certified and loves every aspect of the field, but her expertise and passion is in the optical. She enjoys helping her patients find the perfect frame and lenses to suit their lifestyle.

Enriqueta is a mother of two young ladies age 12 and 10 and when she is not at work she enjoys spending time with them and doing fun activities like going bowling or watching Disney/Pixar movies.

Teresa – Optometric Technician


Teresa is a TSO Supertech dedicated to providing quality care to every patient she meets. Her retirement after seventeen years in the field of education was short lived as her passion for learning new things led her to take on the challenge of beginning a new career as an optometric technician. She’s currently working on her CPOA certification to further her knowledge in the field.

She married her high school sweetheart and they have a son, two dogs and two cats. She and her husband have been involved in ministry since 1990 and in 2004 they started a home church where they continue to serve the community. When she’s not hard at work, she likes spending time in her vegetable garden and sharing the fruits of her labor with family and friends. She enjoys a variety of music genres and is seriously considering going from playing percussion instruments to playing drums! She loves to BBQ and entertain those near and dear to her.

Megan – Optician


Hello! My name is Megan, I am fairly new to this practice but I have already learned so much! I have been in the optical industry for about four years and I enjoy this profession greatly. I love helping patients with frame selections or with any questions they have regarding glasses or contact lenses. I am here to help in any way I can and my main goal is making sure our patients leave here with a wonderful experience.


I am newly married this year and my husband and I have a seventeen month old son who runs our world. We enjoy trips out to Canyon Lake and going to South Padre beach whenever we can make it!

Sunny – Optician
