Holly has worked for Magna Family Eyecare for 20 years. She works mainly in the billing department, but is also highly experienced in selling and dispensing glasses, contacts, and other office administrative and financial tasks. It has been a rewarding experience for her and she has really enjoyed getting to know our patients and developing friendships with them. She has watched a lot of their children grow up. She has been a part of the Magna community for over 35 years. She graduated from Cyprus High School and with her husband raised their five children in Magna. She loves it here, and also enjoys gardening, camping, swimming, and going on vacation. Most of all she loves spending time with her grandchildren and family.
Megan has been around the practice since it opened when she was a kid. Her mom, Holly, started with the practice and as a teen Megan would come in during after hours to clean. She’s watched the practice grow from the time it opened next to Francesca’s(by the old library), the suite next to Smith’s, and to it’s current location in the Magna Medical Office building.
Megan did not have a background in optical when she was hired in 2016, but has learned so much since then and continues learning everyday. She has grown to love and enjoy what she does, especially working with our frame reps as well as helping patients pick out glasses.
Outside of work Megan loves to make and create things. She’s learning hand lettering, water color, crafting, and most of all, working with her tools doing woodworking.
