If you’ve popped into the practice on a Tuesday or Thursday, you may have met our newest team member, Karla.
One thing you may have noticed it that Karla is an American too! We met through an American Women in the UK Facebook group and everything just clicked.
Karla has lived in West Berkshire for three years. She moved with her family from a village within the Norfolk Broads, where they lived for 10 years. She was raised in the state of Minnesota, known for its 10,000 lakes, cold winters/hot summers and Prince.
She met her husband on holiday in Mexico in 2007 and hasn’t looked back. They now have two children aged 7 and 4 and she has a step-daughter, 15.
While she is new to optics, she brings the American customer service with a smile and a bubbly personality, which she puts down to copious amounts of coffee.
Karla will be at the end of the phone to book you in for your eye exams or discuss frame selection.
