2016 Resolutions From the SpecialEyes Team

With the first month of 2016 already behind us, the SpecialEyes team remains focused on our work and personal goals for the year ahead. In this post, we invite you to get to know the SpecialEyes team a little better. Read on for introductions, including our New Year’s resolutions!

Margot White
Margot is the Customer Service Manager at SpecialEyes Custom Soft Contact Lenses. She has been with the company since 2012 and has over 10 years of customer service expertise. Margot and her husband enjoy spending time outdoors, especially with their son Colton. Margot has a very busy schedule, so her resolution for 2016 is to make time for a fun family activity at least once a week.

Allison Salerno
Allison is a Customer Service Representative at SpecialEyes. While her dedication to providing exceptional customer service makes her a valuable employee, it is her sense of humor that keeps everyone in the office smiling. Looking forward to the year ahead, Allison’s words to live by are: “Plan less, do more.”

Michelle Walsh
Michelle is our Director of Sales and Marketing. In addition to being our fearless leader, she is always encouraging the SpecialEyes team to pursue a healthy lifestyle. As all leaders should, Michelle leads by example; and in 2016, she intends to complete a half marathon and add yoga into her workout routine.

Karen Bell
Karen is the newest addition to the SpecialEyes customer service team. Since starting at SpecialEyes, she has developed a keen knowledge of the company’s products and services. One of Karen’s favorite memories of 2015 was training for and completing a 5K run with SpecialEyes executive Michelle Walsh. In 2016, Karen plans to continue her healthy lifestyle and spend more time exercising.

SpecialEyes Team members Staci and Joanna

Staci and Joanna show their support for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Staci Blackwell
Staci is the veteran Account Manager and “office mom” at SpecialEyes. She has been with the company since 2007 and has amassed a vast knowledge of the company’s products and services. In 2016, Staci promises to set aside time for enjoying the simple pleasures in life, like sunshine, fresh air and conversation with her kids.

Joanna Chmiel
Joanna is a Customer Service Representative who currently works remotely while pursuing her bachelor’s degree at the University of Missouri. She loves riding her bike on the MKT Nature and Fitness Trail and walking her dogs at a nearby park. Balancing school, work and home life can be a challenge; so in 2016, Joanna wants to take more time for herself and spend it enjoying the great outdoors.

Lindsay McCorkle
Lindsay is SpecialEyes’ Product Manager and Clinical Liaison. Since 2012, she has been working tirelessly to help the company grow and flourish. In her personal life, Lindsay aims to spend less time looking at her cell phone and more time engaging with others. Another of her goals for 2016 is to learn to play the guitar.

Korinne Andrew
Korinne is the Product Specialist at SpecialEyes. Since joining the SpecialEyes team in 2012, she has developed a true passion for the contact lens industry. Korinne credits 2015 as a year of learning and growth, both personally and professionally. In 2016, she vows to focus on time management and organization while pursuing National Contact Lens Examiners (NCLE) certification.

Scott training SpecialEyes team member Karen

Scott Davis
A licensed dispensing optician hailing from Massachusetts, Scott is the Lead Consultant at SpecialEyes Custom Soft Contact Lenses. He brings a wealth of knowledge and more than 45 years of industry experience to his role. In 2016, Scott is working on limiting stress and having more patience in his day-to-day interactions. As you might imagine, this can be a challenge given that he works in an office full of women!
