Sally started in the optical field in Richmond, VA over thirty years ago and has done a little bit of everything; started as a receptionist, worked as a contact lens specialist, an ophthalmological technician and even went out on the road twice as a frame sales rep. What she found was that her true passion is being an optician and what she loves the most about her profession is the ability to make personal connections with the people that she meets every day.

Sally has been acting Treasurer for the New Hampshire Opticians Society for seven years.
