Jean’s career in optical began in 1980 as an ophthalmic assistant. She then went on to become the office, branch and eventually district manager of 12 optical stores in Michigan and Wisconsin. Before opening Stellar Vision Inc., an independent practice, in 2005, Jean owned and operated an optical franchise. Jean enjoys her work because every day is different from the last, whether it’s hearing about her staff’s family lives or helping a customer perfect his/her new look. For Jean, it’s all about building relationships and lasting friendships. The most rewarding part of Jean’s job is helping kids see and feel confident wearing glasses. When she’s not at Stellar Vision, she enjoys antiquing, collecting candlewick glassware, visiting her daughter in Milwaukee, cheering for her son at sports games and cooking out with friends.
Fun Fact: Jean grew up on her grandparents’ mink farm and lived on a cattle farm where she owned horses.
