As an optician at Brookside Optometric Group, Cherise fits glasses and contact lenses to ensure that each patient has optimal vision. During a typical day, she works closely with our doctors and patients and maintains patient contact lens orders, including logging prescription contact lenses as they arrive from our suppliers and maintaining our in-stock inventory of lenses.
Her favorite aspect of the job is the opportunity to help and interact with patients—she especially enjoys the process of finding the right frames or lenses that fit their lifestyle and provide them with clear, comfortable vision on a daily basis. As part of the Brookside family for the last two and a half years, Cherise feels fortunate for the opportunity to work alongside an amazing group of doctors and staff.
Cherise is currently completing the Emergency Medical Training (EMT) program at NCTI Roseville. She loves animals, and previously worked at a dog kennel and in a warehouse. When she’s away from the office, you’ll find her hanging out with her dog, Chevy. She also enjoys photography and spending time outdoors practicing archery, fishing, and hiking.
