Jenelle has been a part of the practice since December 2019 and took on the role of contact lens technician in May 2020. She says the best part about this job is making sure the first experience as a contact lens wearer goes smoothly and is not frightening to the patient. Her ability to remain calm and engaged is beneficial as she explains all the necessary steps in the insertion and removal process. Jenelle's favorite thing to do when not at work is to spend as much time with my Siberian Husky, Paisley. She also enjoys shopping and being taken on new adventures.
