Meghan started in 2007 as a “Saturday girl” and went on to become a Dispensing Optician. She now proudly manages our Kimberley branch.  Meghan’s favourite part of her job is getting to work with a variety of very different people and advising patients on the best products available to them. To her no one day is ever the same as the previous one and she thrives on its diversity. In her spare time she enjoys family, friends, cinema and walking with her dog.

DISPENSING OPTICIAN

ANDY

Started with us in May 2016, he qualified as a dispensing optician having studied at both the Bradford and London colleges back in 1989. He has worked in multiple and independent environments with over 18 years experience. Much preferring the independents to spend time with each patient as an individual.
