    Congrats to April and Shawn!

    Every month, we have our employees nominate another employee for our "Fred Award". A "Fred" is someone who goes out of their way to uphold our practice core values of Excellence in Eye Care, Patients Come First and Lead by Example. As a practice, we not only want our employees to come to work to get the days jobs done, but to strive to work harder each and every day for the sake of the practice as a whole.


    In January the Fred Award went to Shawn Calloway and in February it went to April Vaughn because each stood out as a team leader and went above and beyond in making our office a better place.  We are proud to have them on our staff.  Congratulations Shawn and April!
