My name is Leslie and I was born in Mexico. I came here when I was 8 years old and left again when I was 16. Four years ago I came back and my first job was in optical. I automatically fell in love with it. 6 months later I took my American Board of Opticianry exam and passed it! I worked at LensCrafters for about 3 years and decided that it was time to explore more!

Diana was born in Long Beach, CA and raised in Bakersfield. She was exposed to optics at a very young age as her mother was also an optician growing up. For the last 5 years she has worked and gained her own experience in optics from a national optical chain. She pays close attention to the patients optical needs, while incorporating her enjoyment of styling and fitting them with her fashion forward expertise. Diana is currently earning her Bachelors degree in Pre-Medical Sciences. For the last 4 years she resided in Camarillo, CA where she attended Cal State Channel Islands. She carries the flavor of the coast life from her time there. She loves spending time with her family and loved ones, and enjoys running and working out to a great playlist. She can also make the world’s best cup of coffee.
Dario has been working in the optical field since 2016. He started at a major optical chain as a lab technician and optician. Dario is a driven individual that strives to better himself in the field of eye care by working on skills that enhance his optical knowledge. He also loves to build quality relationships with his patients. In his free time he is a freelance photographer shooting weddings and portraits. He also enjoys working out and cycling both on and off road.
My name is Wendy and I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. I moved to Bakersfield about five years ago to start a family. After being a stay at home mom, I decided to go back into optics. I have worked in optics for over 6 year’s with most of my experience coming from a national optical chain and one year working for a private optical. I absolutely fell in love working for a smaller company that I had to go back. I love to travel and create amazing memories with my family.
Dan started his career in optics, in the Midwest in the mid-90’s…after near 5 years, he took a time away from the optical world to pursue his love of art and theater. After nearly 15 years, he returned to the “world he never really left behind”. After many years pursuing his other dreams including starting a family, he found himself, back in that familiar territory for the past 6 years. The world of eyeglasses, contacts and the advancements in technology are remarkable. Working in an office environment, rather than ‘Big Box’ has lent itself to a lot of growth. You can tell the entire staff’s heart is into helping the patient and it shows…
Danielle grew up in Fresno and relocated to Bakersfield with her husband in 2010. Shortly after, she began her optical experience in 2012. Danielle loves helping her patients find that perfect frame and creating a fun shopping experience. Her favorite line is Matsuda because of the craftsmanship and details put in to every frame. Danielle is currently attending High Desert Medical College to be an Ultrasound Technician. When she isn’t attending school or working, she and her husband enjoy taking their son Luke on new adventures. Danielle enjoys all games and will never pass up a game night with family and friends.
