Licensed Optician and Contact Lens Fitter
Sara started her journey in the optical field in 1989 in Toronto, Canada. Her passion for learning how to make prescription lenses navigated her to working in an optical lab. Working with mentors and experts in the optical field gave her the opportunity to learn and evolve her knowledge. She graduated as a licensed optician from Ontario in 1997 and moved to British Columbia in 2012. Sara thrives on helping others with finding glasses that enhance not only their vision but their facial features by providing them an experience that brings joy to the process of eyeglass shopping. Sara has worked in different facets of the optical industry from managing optical labs to owning her own stores to managing stores and regions of larger companies and finally has completed the circle by coming back to doing what she loves : creating an experience for people who need to enhance their vision. Working with Paul at Prestige Optical who also thrives on creating such experience for the community in beautiful Kitsilano has given Sara a sacred space to practice as a licensed optician. In her spare time, Sara loves to walk in nature, write stories, read, meditate and cook healthy nutrition meals.
