LaSharr shines at helping the patient select new frames and lenses. She has great knowledge of lens design, lens features and oversees our large dispensary.

She spends her free time either going back home to visit her family or hanging out with her two amazing cats Jasmine and Raja. If she’s not doing one of those two things you can normally find her reading or watching Disney movies or football. Her favorite place in the world is the ocean no matter the temperature of the water she will go right in.
