About Our Staff
We are proud to have one of the nation’s best trained staffs. Our staff has many nationally certified opticians and assistants. At EyeWorks, we believe that staff training and education leads to better patient care. Many of our staff attend national meetings to stay up-to-date with the latest in eyecare.
Here are some of the following certifications to look for from optical staff:
ABOC: American Board of Opticianry Certification. An Optician with this designation has passed a national competency test and kept up with educational credits yearly.
ABO-AC: American Board of Opticianry Advanced Certification. An Optician with this designation has passed a more advance examination and is current with their ABOC.
ABO Master: This is the highest designation for an optician in the United States. An Optician with this designation has passed their advanced test and completed the Master’s program.
CPOA: This is the first level in national certification for an optometric assistant. To earn this designation, an assistant must pass a national test and keep up educational credits yearly.
CPOC: This is the second level for an optometric assistant. To earn this designation, an assistant must pass a more advanced test, have earned CPOA certification, and keep up with educational credits.
CPOT: To earn this highest designation for an optometric assistant, an assistant must pass an advanced test and a practical, hands-on test.
The integration of eye health, the correct eyewear prescription, and personalized frame and lens design culminates in great vision. Scott is honored to have so many people in our community entrust their frame and lens design to him. As an optician in the area for over 25 years, he has been able to use his experience to help our patients achieve the best possible vision. Challenging prescriptions are his specialty, and he enjoys solving vision problems.
In addition to optics, Scott has a passion for sports, poker and his grandchildren.

Kat left an exciting career as a veterinary technician in 2016 to join our practice and become a nationally certified optician. She has a fascination for all things scientific, which keeps her interested and excited about lens and frame technology changes. She takes great satisfaction in fitting patients with the best eyewear for their particular needs. Her compassion for others is evident in her relationships with patients and co-workers. On her down time Kat enjoys exploring the New England countryside, art, reading, and spending time with her amazing boyfriend and family.
Laura, who joined EyeWorks in June of 2011, looks forward to greeting you with a warm reception and assisting you with all your eye care needs before, during, and after your visit. Please give her a call to book your next appointment.
Tracie served in US Air Force Intelligence Operations, but that’s as much as can be said about that. Becoming a Certified Paraoptometric Assistant did not appear on her radar though until 2015, when she decided to pursue a career that would allow her to connect on a more personal level with people. Tracie says her time in the service gave her an appreciation for working in a team, and it is her mission here to give each patient outstanding care. When not capturing remarkable images of eyes with the latest technology, Tracie enjoys painting with acrylics on canvas. She makes awesome peanut butter buckeyes too.
Carrie joined the EyeWorks team in 2004 where her deep commitment to health and fitness has been central to her success with patients. Her degree in psychology also allows Carrie to skillfully set patients at ease throughout their exams and to put a smile on their faces along the way. In her off hours, she might be found lifting weights in her basement gym, or exploring hiking trails in and around the Monadnock Region with her husband, two children and two dogs.
