It is so important to love where you work....and I do. Everyday we collectively meet, greet and care for others. We want to know who are patients are and how they live. Working here embraces so much more than eyecare and eyewear. I am thankful to have had my path lead me to this profession. It is the perfect balance between medicine and fashion. Pinch me!

I’m originally from Sweden and recently relocated from the mainland where I have been an licensed optician and frame stylist for over 25 years. I’ve always said “a face is a great work of art and deserves a great frame!” I’m so blessed to continue my passion for eyewear & eyecare with the great team at VisionWorks Optometry in the beautiful Comox Valley.

I have the best job in the world! I get to meet new people every day and get to know all of our patients and customers better. I even get to hug a few! Getting to know the hearts of who I spend my day with is why I am here. I am the face you who usually greets you when you come through our door. It is my goal to make this feel like home to you.

I love what I do. I have ever changing days filled with inspiring patients and fantastic co-workers. I help patients with their eye care and eyewear. Teaching contact lens care or being the fashion police is just a part of my amazing day. I moved here from PEI in 2015....I found VisionWorks...and they found me.
