Management and Staff
Jenny joined the practice in 2008 when her spouse was stationed in Everett at the naval base. Although born and raised in Texas, and then later moving to Tennessee, she and her spouse finally decided to call the beautiful Pacific Northwest their home. We were blessed to acquire an expert employee with attention to detail. Bookkeeping and numbers are what Jenny zeros in on, making her a great asset on our management team. Jenny’s role as office manager involves revising procedures and processes to make Alderwood Vision Source function as smoothly as possible. As she has been with our company for over 10 years, Jenny delegates tasks throughout the office to prioritize patient care.
Jenny is also our staff photographer as she graduated with an AA in Fine Arts in Photography. Besides photography, Jenny enjoys National Parks, traveling, hiking and camping with her husband.
We are thrilled to have Renata as one of our Ophthalmic Technicians after many years working for us as an Optician. She has been a great asset to have worked in multiple areas of the clinic as she brings a vast knowledge to her position, including her attention to detail and willingness to help out the team. Born and raised in South Africa until she was 16, she is able to speak Afrikaans with some of our patients who also speak the language. Outside of work she enjoys watching the Seahawks games with her cat, Bella, and baking for us!
