I wanted to go into a profession where I could help others. One of my greatest satisfactions is when patients are happy with how well they see with their new eyewear or contacts, or how well their eyes feel after being treated. I also enjoy helping pick out frames for our patients.
I am from South Dakota, graduating from the University of South Dakota, and then from the Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon. Between the two I taught middle school science and math. I gained ten years of experience working at a clinic with several ophthalmologists. I have more respect for business owners after starting Eye Works, Inc., in 2002. Thank you, patients, for your support!
After hours I enjoy trying to keep up with my kids (including my pugs), hiking and crafts.
Crissy and Margo Crissy has previous experience in optical. For fifteen years she has ordered and adjusted glasses. After taking a couple years off to stay home with kids she is back! She enjoys spending time with her family, boating, keeping track of sports scores, and exploring the Black Hills. Margo has previous experience in optical also. She is from Montana and has family here. She likes to read in her spare time.
Tiramisu has worked here since she was a puppy, and has now retired along with her kids (below), Tank, Turbo and Kefi. She enjoys chasing birds from the bird feeders on the deck.
