Getting to know your EOF Optician: Emily B.

How Long with Eyes on Fremont:
Emily has been a part of the EOF family for 2.5 years, joining the crew while in the midst of her Opticianry program degree at Seattle Central. She graduated & obtained her license in 2014! 

Her EOF “Specialty”: 
Although Emily is a skilled “front-end” optician, she really enjoys working on the lab/production side of things as well. She splits her time in the shop doing lens finishing work, repairs, sunclip production, and dispensing/adjusting.  Emily prefers to exercise her “tactile” skills wherever she can in the shop!

What motors Emily’s interests & what keeps her happily “scooting” along:

Emily balances work & play really well- engaging herself off the clock with the light-hearted, the off-beat, the creative & quirky things in life.  
She finds interest in collecting natural “oddities”, fun & colorful trinkets, & is a fetishist for Hello Kitty paraphernalia.  If she’s not scootering around town, she probably is chilling out crafting or sewing cool things like hand-bags & vintage-inspired items. She prefers and appreciates the “old-school way” for her art process & aesthetics.
The bottom line with Emily is to approach life with a little sense of humor & fun!
