Diya is our newest Optometric Assistant and she will only be with us temporarily until her school program begins.  We feel fortunate to have her!  

Here's a little Q & A with Diya...

What's your favorite color?
What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school, it was history; in college, it was art history.
Do you have any hobbies?
I love photography, baking, hiking, and playing sports.
What do you like about being an Optometric Assistant?
I love being able to meet so many new people each day and how friendly everyone is!


Meet Kira at the front desk!  She's also a full time student and extremely hard working!  We love having her in the office! 

Here's a few things to know about Kira:

What's your favorite color?
My favorite color is mint green, but I'm partial to most soft shades of greens and blues!

Any hobbies?
I love skiing/snowboarding, hiking, camping, painting, and photography. Anything that allows me to either be outdoors or creating!

What subjects do you most enjoy in school?
I pick up on math very easily, but it's not my favorite. I really I enjoy writing classes (so most English courses appeal to me), or any other classes that are outside of the box like yoga and theater classes that I've taken in the past!

Favorite books?
Harry Potter has my heart when it comes to books! I also enjoy lots of Stephen King and other thrillers!

What do you like about being and OA?
My favorite thing about be an Optometric Assistant is getting to talk to patients while they wait to see Dr. Barak. I've gotten to hear stories from all sorts of people about some really fascinating stuff! Aside from that, I've really enjoyed learning about eyes and how some of the equipment we use here works!
