Get to know your licensed optician… Milli!

Many of you have had the pleasure of working with Milli from time to time.  She’s one of the friendliest & most outgoing members of the Eyes on Fremont family!

There’s always more than meets the eye, so here’s a few tidbits on how Milli came to be at EOF & what she’s all about:

Milli has been a licensed dispensing optician for 1 1/2 years.  She finished the opticianry program at Seattle Central Community College & was licensed September 2011. She is also ABO & NCLE certified.

Milli previously was in print publishing before opticianry.  She owned a magazine & worked in the PR industry for 20 years before the economy turned around 2007, affecting the publishing world.  Deciding it was time for a change, she moved from Los Angeles to Seattle and researched new careers. Opticianry offered her the challenge of learning something new: the mix of science and fashion in the optical field captured her interest.

When Milli isn’t at EOF finding you the perfect pair of glasses, she is most likely “hanging out with family & friends… cooking, eating, & drinking (lol)”.

Quick Q&A with Milli:

Day or Night: Day

Cats or Dogs: Most recently, Dogs.  Have always been a cat person before that.

Coffee or Tea: Coffee!

Boots or Heels: Boots. But I have lots of both

Cat-eye shape or Square-rim: Square-rim

Plastic or metal frames: Plastic

Yoga or Running: YES PLEASE!
