Dakota Lewis

Senior Optician

Meet our Senior Optician/Head of Operations! Dakota has over 10 years of experience in the Eye Care industry. She possesses the unique skillset of multitasking, exceptional customer service and a work ethic second to none. You will always be greeted with a warm smile when you meet Dakota. She is also great at helping our patients pick out their new frames, answering questions about their prescriptions and ensuring that they all leave knowing they got the best value for their hard-earned dollars.

Dakota completed her optician’s diploma in 2015 and has grown into her role as the Optical manager. She is currently working towards her Contact Lens Specialty and will soon be seeing patients independently. We are very proud and blessed to have her on our team.

When she isn’t working, Dakota enjoys spending time with her family and catching up with old friends. The mountains always seems to be calling and life has been a great adventure for Dakota.


Val Sibulak

Senior Optometric Assistant

Meet our Senior Optometric Assistant/Administrator Extraordinaire!

Val is amazing and warm-hearted. She excels in helping the office run smoothly.

From booking appointments to giving patients an opinion on their new glasses, Val

does everything with a smile. She has been with us for 6 years and will hopefully

stay with us for 10 more!

When you come in for an Eye Exam, Val is usually the one who gets to administer

that air puff test that nobody likes. She seems to enjoy it just fine 😉 If you are

one of our regulars, Val never forgets a name or face. She treats everyone like

family and her care for your well being really shines through.

When Val isn’t in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends,

scrap-booking, doing crafts, camping and traveling. Life has its ups and downs but

Val always seems to sail through with her undying optimism and good nature. We

are so happy to have her as part of our fantastic team!


JoAnne Howard

Eye Wear Consultant

Meet our vibrant and youthful Eye Wear Consultant!

JoAnne or Jo as her friends call her, is a breath of fresh air. She has been with us

for 3 years spreading joy and creativity with her sweet disposition. Patients love

the frames that she chooses for them. They appreciate the wealth of knowledge

that she shares in adapting their prescriptions for optimal use. Customer service is

very important to Jo and it really shows in the way that she helps our patients.

Always smiling, cheerful and honest with her opinions, Jo ensures that our patients

leave happy 🙂

When she isn’t working, Jo enjoys spending time with her family, relaxing at home

and coming up with new, creative ways to make memories. We have seen some of

her family photoshoots and they are EPIC!
