Ava Hendrickson - Practice Manager, ABO & NCLE Certified Optician/Contact LensTech

It is a great pleasure to have Ava as our Practice Administrator. Her enthusiasm for excellent patient care has earned her high praise from our patients. Ava came to us from Southern California where she was the Manager of a private practice optometry office in Newport Beach for eleven years. She has been an ABO certified Optician as well as an NCLE certified Contact Lens Technician since 1999. She has always enjoyed helping patients select just the right frame as well as working with them to ensure their lens choices are right for their lifestyle. She wore contact lenses until she had Lasik and enjoys working with her contact lens patients. Anyone coming in for a class knows the care she takes in training new contact lens wearers. Ava was a counselor with a Bachelor’s Degree is in Psychology until changing her path after marriage and children came along. She was born in Budapest, Hungary and has done a great deal of traveling around the world. She hopes to do a great deal more and loves to meet and interact with new people. Ava is far and away the best thing that has happened to our practice!

Nicole Kastronis - Optometric Technician & Contact Lens Sales

Nicole came to us all the way from Wales! She is an experienced technician who knows how to make patients feel comfortable and has a great deal of optical knowledge as well. Nicole has been with us since October of 2016.

Christina Hanson - Patient Care Coordinator

Christina started with us in November 2016 and is settling in very nicely!  If you have any billing or insurance questions, she would be the person that any patient from either office would speak with.  Her friendly personality can't be missed as you enter the Fairfax office!

Sharon Reid - Fairfax, Virginia Licensed Optician

Sharon joined us right after Thanksgiving 2017 and just in time for the Holiday rush!  We are very happy to have her and know that she will be a great asset to our office!  She is a Virginia licensed Optician, so you can trust that she knows her stuff!  Additionally, she is a warm and funny lady that we are sure you will enjoy choosing your all important eyewear with.  Please come by the office and meet her!
