Jamie | Office Manager
Jamie has been with Texas State Optical since January 2013. She started in our Fredericksburg location working as a technician where she quickly started studying for the ABO certification. This is where she found a love for the optical. After receiving her ABO certification and learning the skills of an optician, she was promoted to Assistant Manager and moved to the Kerrville TSO. She is now the Office Manager here at our Bandera location and is excited to open up a world of bright, crisp vision for our patients. She strives to give superb customer service and makes sure every patient leaves our office with a smile. When not at the office, she enjoys swimming, hiking, running and camping with her husband, Loren & daughters, Shayna and Lauren.
