When you visit Brookside Optometric, chances are you are greeted by our receptionist, Savanna. Savanna lives with her family in Stockton. She attended Edison High School and Maric College.
Savanna’s many responsibilities include helping the doctors prepare for their day, pulling the charts of the day’s patients, checking in patients, answering phone calls to make appointments or answer patient questions and closing down the office at the end of the day.
“My favorite part of the job is working with Brookside Optometric Group staff and doctors,” says Savanna. “After being here for about a year I consider them my BOG family.”
One of Savanna’s fondest memories is when a patient who was just five or six years old came in to pick up her glasses. “I saw her when she was leaving and she was smiling because she loved her glasses,” says Savanna. “I love seeing people happy and I like to help when I can.”
In her free time Savanna likes to spend time with her parents, two brothers and her boyfriend. “My new hobby is bowling. My boyfriend got me interested and now I am on two leagues.” Savanna bowls with her dad, brother, boyfriend and his mom and her mom and sister come to cheer them on. “We all have a good time and every night I try to beat my average.”
