Optical Staff

Kim, ABO

Our Optical Manager, Kim, couldn’t have picked a better profession. She is very people-oriented, caring, and experienced-having worked here for 29 years. One of her favorite job aspects is watching the reaction of children and adults when they pick up their glasses and realize how much it’s improved their vision. In addition to being ABO certified, she completed the Essilor Optical Manager program. Kim has 2 children, 3 grandchildren, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. Kim stays active with managing Rec Plex concessions for Pontiac Jr. Baseball & Softball and attending her grandchildren’s school events. For hobbies, she enjoys walking, cooking (often baking extra treats for her coworkers), and decorating for holidays.

Nicole, CNA, CPO

Nicole joined our practice in 2017 with several years of optical experience already. She has a background as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and is now a certified paraoptometric (CPO). Nicole always ensures a good patient experience helping to select frames that are comfortable and stylish with lens options that optimize vision for the person’s lifestyle. She is gifted at knowing what frame shape looks best for an individual’s face shape and complexion. Nicole loves how the staff work together and have fun while doing it. Her passion, caring nature, love of interacting with people, and love of learning new things make her an excellent optician. In her free time, she enjoys boating.


Kimberly joined Pontiac Family Eye Care in 2018 with prior optician experience. She’s refined her skills by completing Vision Source’s optician training program. Kimberly’s favorite part of her job is working with and helping patients. In the community, she coaches Odell grade school cheerleading, helps as a team mom for Pontiac JFL, and is a lector at St. Paul Church. She and her husband Bryan have 4 children and animals including dogs, cats, goats, cows, and a donkey. Her hobbies include reading, shopping, and spending time with her family.


Tara became a part of the optical team in 2021. She enjoys interacting with patients and her goal is to make the frame selection process a fun experience. Her sense of style and optical knowledge allow her to tailor glasses to match patients’ lifestyles and goals. Tara is married to Jesse and they have a young son. Her hobbies include shopping, playing volleyball, and spending time with friends.
