Hello, my name is Shanise, I have been with Bossier Family Eye Care for over 4 years and I love my job. I get to see each and every person twice. I’m a military brat that grew up in Germany. I love working out, reading, traveling, and eating amazing foods from all over the world. If you are looking for a place to take care of all your eye care needs, please come by and see our amazing staff. We will do right “BAYOU”.
What do I do at Bossier Family Eye Care? I’m the Optician here and I love my job, 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.
What’s your background? I’m from South Louisiana, Northshore of the causeway. I graduated High School in 2003, I moved here about two years ago for love, my fiancé and I live with our three pups in a quiet neighborhood in Princeton, LA. We plan to get married in October of 2020.
Favorite Quote: “Some women fear the fire, some simply become it.” -R.H. Sin
Favorite Books: I love all things horror, so no surprise that my favorite books are written by Stephen King.
1. Bag of Bones
2. The Shining
3. Doctor Sleep
My Hobbies: Besides reading, I enjoy writing too, mostly short stories and poetry. I also like to paint and I’m wanting to learn pottery soon. My fiancé and I like to travel for wrestling events and our family all loves softball so most weekends you can find us on the ball field.
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 have been in the south for over 11 years, Bossier City, La. for the past 7. However, 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.
