I’m the Optician here at Bossier Family Eye Care, I’m always excited to come to work and help patients to not only find a pair of glasses they will love, but I’ll ensure that each pair will be custom for each patient’s face and lifestyle. I take facial and eye measurements and adjust the frames for each patient to make sure they have the fit they were looking for. I’m from South Louisiana Northshore of the causeway, I graduated High School in 2003. I moved here about two years ago for love, me and my husband live with our three pups in a quiet neighborhood in Princeton, LA.
I enjoy writing poetry, and watching wrestling with my family.

I am fairly new at Bossier Family Eye Care, and I am enjoying working here with all these great people. Dr. Pastilong is so good at what she does and is such a great person to work for. Plus, all of the staff work so well together to ensure each patient's visit runs smooth from start to finish, making it such a nice place to work. I look forward to working here for years to come.
I moved to the south in 2008, but have only lived in Bossier City, La. since 2012. I grew up in Wyoming, and definitely miss the beautiful snowy winter weather, hikes and camping in the beautiful mountains, and all of my family and friends. I enjoy cooking and music, and am a very positive and outgoing person. My husband and I have four kids, who keep us both very busy, and make everything we do worthwhile.
Some of the wisest words I live by are:
Live and Let Live.
First, you must love yourself.
You are the creator of your own happiness.
Receptionist / Technician
I've previously worked in Ophthalmology for 5 years and made the switch to Optometry. Guess I couldn't stray from the eye business! The best parts of my job are being able to greet the patients and work with an amazing group of girls.
I was born and raised in Keithville. Although growing up and still to this day did/do lots of traveling. I really love going camping, to rodeos, and watching races at the dirt track.
