As front desk manager at Brookside Optometric Group, JoAnn is one of the first people that patients meet when they visit the office. She oversees appointment scheduling for all of the optometrists, handles supply orders and recall notices, and manages staff as they check, pull, and prep patient charts.
Her favorite aspect of the job is creating a welcoming environment for patients. When patients come in to the office to pick up their new glasses, she loves to see their smiles as they experience restored vision. As part of the Brookside team for 13 years, JoAnn appreciates working in a family-oriented environment filled with caring and compassionate doctors and staff.
JoAnn graduated from Lincoln High School in Stockton. She attended Delta College before transferring to California State University, Sacramento where she studied biological sciences. Married for 35 years, JoAnn and her husband Phil live in Lodi. Their son, Alec, recently graduated from San Jose State University. When she’s not at work, JoAnn loves to travel and watch basketball. She also enjoys cooking, baking, and adding to her doll collection.
