Hello! I enjoy pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and yes, I have half a brain. I am just starting in the optometric profession and I really enjoy learning all that comes with it. Sitting in my hometown VFW that my grandfather built, drinking a Yuengling Lager and watching a WWII movie is one of my favorite things to do. I hope you see you and your eyes get the best they deserve!
Jessalin is the newest addition to the team! She moved to the area in the summer of 2020, shortly after graduating from Penn State University with a Japanese B.A. and Linguistics B.A. As a user of glasses since she was four years old, she has personal experience with wearing, caring for, and picking out glasses since she was young. Whether you're here to pick some new frames or practice your Japanese, Jessalin is happy to help.
