“Before coming to work at Jarvis Vision Center, I would never have guessed that making glasses would be a source of excitement and joy. I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Murray State, and spent some time wandering in seminary and factory work before landing in my optical career. I particularly enjoy repairing broken and misshapen glasses frames, but my favorite aspect of this job is being part of a high-caliber team of specialists who support each other, educate each other, and enjoy each other’s company.”
