The idea of Moon & Co Eyewear began one special night at a women’s Christian event; “Fierce”. There was a team of very empowering women speakers who changed my life forever. It gave me the courage I lacked to expand and become who the Lord wanted me to be.
My first optical job was at Lens Crafters in Estero Florida, where I met Ly. I worked at the forefront of the store and Ly was a lab tech surfacing and cutting lenses. Ly impressed me with her craftsmanship and love for what she did in that lab. My stay at LCs was very short, but our friendship continued through the years.
After eight months at LCs, I started working at Spectacles of Naples, where I met three of the industry’s finest master opticians and the most wonderful human beings I’ve ever known (I miss you guys!). This is where I learned that my job was not to just sell fashionable glasses; my job was to sell vision. Nothing brought me more joy and reward than when my patient said, “OMG!! I can SEE!!!”.
I had no expectations starting this job, and opening my own optical was the furthest thing from my mind. I thought this would be just another job, but little did I know it would change my life. I now had the knowledge, the courage and the passion to venture out on my own with that service standard in mind.
