Getting to know your EOF Optician: What Powers Mayann through the Day

DSC 8420

How Long with Eyes on Fremont: 


Mayann is currently the longest standing employee of EOF– rounding the corner of 14 years! She has had the advantage of witnessing the evolution of this special little shop- through all of its turnover and growth, she’s proud to have been a part of the process. 


Her EOF “Specialty”: 

If there is anyone fitted to the term “jack of all trades” it would be Mayann. She has had a hand (and foot) in most operations around the shop; from dispensing & customer satisfaction, to lab support, handling bills and consignment accounts, assisting in frame selection and design, and social media networking… she enjoys the wide range of tasks that helps EOF thrive.

Center pieces are her own jewelry designs by Ate Collective.

Mayann’s current preoccupations & passions:

Mayann has a passion for music and art– her past times almost always include attending live music shows and supporting the art scene around Seattle.  Everything from Hip Hop/rap to indie rock, to jazz & experimental electronica to DJ sets, tends to draw her interest & you will most likely run into her at any live gathering that involves local art & fashion. 
When she’s not grinding away at work or the gym, she loves metal fabrication and wears a lot of her own handmade jewelry pieces. Danaca Design in the University District is a place she really enjoys learning the metalsmithing process. 

She has currently has ambitions of learning dance and traveling around the world, seeing as many places as possible!

Getting to Know your EOF Optician: Milli

Optician: Milli

How Long with Eyes On Fremont:
 4 years!  Milli has been a licensed dispensing optician since April 2011. 


Her EOF “Specialty”: 
Milli actually came on board while still attending the Opticianry program at SCCC. She worked as our very first front end “greeter/host” for our busy shop days. She has a natural energy working with people partly due to her extensive background and years working in PR & Marketing for magazines. 

What defines Milli as a person: 
Milli identifies strongly with her Italian roots & a things that tend to define her culture:  Food, family, & fun!

Clockwise, L to R: Milli’s straw vacuum hat, Silver frame from MotherBaugh, Yin-yang silver necklace, family heirloom cooking spoon, “Milli” from Roger Eye Design, Vagrancy Designs sunglass, Rosetta Stone Italiano, “Welcome Giancarlo” sauce can from her 1st son’s baby shower.

She is currently planning another trip to Mexico with her family: her husband and two sons, who are her inspiration & livelihood. 
She describes her sons as “day & night” but both compliment one another & bring balance to her life, much like yin & yang.  
In addition to the family dynamic, she balances duty & work with fun– enjoying music concerts with her eldest son (they went to see Eminem & Rhianna just this fall!) & warm weather family vacations every year. 
 And, there’s no better way to appreciate your loved ones than with some well prepared home cooking: something she picked up from her mother (she still cooks her best dishes with her Ma’s spoon). 
Just a few of the reasons that Milli has one of the sunniest dispositions of our opticians at Eyes on Fremont.
