Hello, my name is Stephanie, I grew up in the East Bay and I moved to Merced for college and earned a Bachelors in Biology from UC Merced. I've been an optician for 3 years now and what I enjoy the most about my job is helping our patients figure out what glasses work best to fulfill their daily needs. During my free time I enjoy exploring outdoors and different restaurants.
Hello, My name is Alejandra and I have been working as an optician for about six years, serving the East Bay community. I love helping people find comfortable glasses that suit their everyday needs, with style. When I am not at work, I like to cook and try new recipes, read, play with my two dachshunds, and watch football during the season.
