Q&A with our Newest Optician, Rene

ReneXWith 17 years of experience in the optometric field, Rene brings a lot of know how to her job. She became very interested in the optical field during her first job in 1991. Rene recalls that all the training she received has been on the job, and she continues her learning with workshops, videos, and different reading materials. She loves learning about new developments, as well as helping patients and getting to know what’s new in the industry.

Rene loves her job at Battle Creek Eye Clinic. She says that she felt comfortable as soon as I walked into the office and the atmosphere is different than any other optical she’s ever been in. Her favorite brands are Bebe and Silhouette, because they’re of amazing quality!

Her most recent on-the-job-moment of gratification was when she had a patient whose husband recently passed away. She delivered her glasses to her at her home during this difficult time, so she wouldn’t have to go out. Rene’s positive spirit and desire to always go the extra-mile adds something special to the team at Battle Creek Eye Clinic.
